Saracin's Ride

tuesday 15 august 2023 in Sarteano, Siena

Saracin's Ride

The event has been documented since 1583. Medieval tournament in which five riders, representing the five districts of the village, challenge in the main square of the village. With an ankle pulled, the knights must thread a ring placed over the shield of a swinging torso called Buratto, representing the Saracen Invader. The winner is the winner who, after five batteries, called Careers, has taken more rings. The procession that winds through the country's streets early in the afternoon, with very elegant medieval dresses, is breathtaking.
