Palio delle Barche

Back in 1495 a small army made up of Sienese and exiles from Perugia occupied the castle of Passignano, but the reaction of Perugia was so violent that the invaders loaded their boats on their shoulders and tried in vain to flee to the nearby islands.

This historic event gave birth to the Palio delle Barche a spectacular and unique race which takes place in three phases: the first and the third in the water, whilst the second on dry land where the contestants carry their boats on their shoulders through the old town.

The race takes place on the last Sunday of July, and features more than 160 contestants, divided into four teams from the four town's district: Centro Storico, Centro 2, Oliveto, and San Donato. Each district is symbolized by a different fish: the Carp, the Pike, the Eel and the Perch.

During the Palio a race reserved for women,"The Jug Race", also takes place.
