NATIONAL MEDIEVAL COMBAT TOURNAMENT (The Belmonte Challenge)

The third weekend of September, the esplanade at the foot of the Castle hosts the popular National Medieval Combat Tournament, the "Belmonte Challenge," where tourists can enjoy not only a tournament just as it would have been held in the Middle Ages, but also travel to this period in time thanks to the professionalism of participants and the detailed Castle ambiance.

"Medieval Combat" is a contact sport on foot with a strong historical aspect, based on European medieval tournaments in the 14th and 15th centuries. It emerged in Europe a bit more than twenty years ago and has quickly spread throughout the rest of the world. One may enjoy different modalities of this sport, duels and mêlées, yet always under official regulations governing both the equipment used and the techniques permitted. There is a highly strict disciplinary code to keep participants safe.

These are not choreographed fights or shows, but rather a top-tier sport competition where each and every one of the fighters give it their best to come out victorious.
