Medieval Tournament

A medieval tournament taking place on the 15th of August in Sarteano (SI) southern Tuscany. Five contradas fighting “the Saraceno enemy”. The event starts with a medieval parade throughout the city centre whereby the mounted knights are introduced to the public. People follow the parade as it heads to the public. People follow the parade as it heads to the Piazza where the flag throwing games begin, and later, the Joust takes place. A special thanks to Dario Pichini for sharing the photos.
