Description

The Feast of "Barbari" in Castel Rigone, is ready for its 35th edition! It has been for many years the only one historical reenactment of gothic era in Italy. From the reconstruction of the crafts of that time to the proposals of a "barbarian" menu, from 2nd to 5th August 2018, you will be part of this unique event!

The origins of this festival dates back to the birth of the village of Castel Rigone, founded by the barbarian Riggo during the invasions of 543 AD. Fortified in 1297, today the village retains all its medieval charm, enhanced by its magnificent position on the highest hill overlooking Lake Trasimeno. From its height you can indeed admire spectacular views of the lake and surrounding valleys.
