Medieval Market
The Taverna del Balestriere is open to the public.

Every year during the medieval week, the town of Cortona organizes traditional medieval markets, where people can buy delicious typical products and taste old recipes of countryside tradition as well as enjoy beautiful local handicraft expositions which recall old trades and flavors.

The Archidado Joust, officially created in 1397 to celebrate the wedding of the Lord of Cortona and a noble woman from Siena, is a historical event in which the different quarters of the town compete in a crossbow tournament. Costume parades, typical medieval dinners, flagflyers and fire-eaters performances, falconry and magic shows are organized every year to relive the medieval splendor of Cortona.
