Medieval event in the Castles Bellinzona's three castles, which have been superbly restored and have plenty of green areas, are available for staging medieval style events. Thanks to the fact that the castles are not far apart, the programme can include a welcome cocktail, for example, at Montebello Castle, where the medieval festival "La Spada nella Rocca" is held . The participants to a medieval event will be welcomed by costume clad characters, knights in armour, trumpeters and artisans in their ancient workshops. In the afternoon they can compete in tournaments such as archery, tug-of-war and jousting or watch a reconstruction of the legend of William Tell. The evening can continue with a dinner at Castelgrande, where the menu offers intriguing medieval dishes. Then, as the perfect finale, what could be more fitting than a medieval play staged against the backdrop of the castle walls illuminated for the occasion.
