San Marino: Medieval Crossbow Competition
One of the most fascinating traits of San Marino is to offer its visitors the chance to travel in time. Ancient walls, medieval towers, small streets scrambling through Monte Titano overlooking a town filled with history and traditions. On June 11, the immersion in the medieval world will be even more intense: a competition between crossbowmen schools will bring back the medieval spirit of San Marino in 1.400 AC.
The visitors will be entertained with skilled shooters, flag-wavers, musicians and very accurate medieval costume players from the Federazione Balestrieri Sammarinesi. The five best shooters of e ach castle of the Republic will challenge themselves to conquer a prestigious prize: a valuable handmade silver cup. The trophy will be kept in the winner castle and exhibited at the headquarters of the Giunta di Castello for a year. Visit San Marino from June 9 to 11 is an unmissable opportunity to experience typical vibes and colours of the real medieval days, which will end with a last date with a real challenge between champions.
