Gubbio Crossbow Tournament

May 28

Every May since 1594, on the last Sunday of the month, the towns of Gubbio and Sansepolcro have competed against each other with crossbows. A nod to Italy’s medieval past, the competitors dress up in period costumes and battle to win a gold, silver, or bronze crossbow.
