Quintana Joust in Foligno

Quintana Joust

When? 12th – 13th June, 12th and – 13th September 2020

Where? Foligno – Umbria

Twice a year, Foligno is home to the Giostra della Quintana, a medieval tournament in which ten knights, representing the ten town districts of Foligno, test their skills trying to stick their spear through a series of rings, all whilst racing a horse.

The night before the competition, more than 600 people in period costume parade through the streets of the town, a splendid occasion to discover this beautiful town in an unparalleled setting. During the festival is also possible to reserve a seat at an al fresco medieval banquet in the Piazza Grande.
