Fodor's Review

On July 25, La Giostra dell'Orso celebrates St. James, Pistoia's patron saint. During the staged event three knights from each section of the city fight a "bear" (actually a target shaped like a bear that they strike, on horseback). The visitor center has more information on the event.
