Abruzzo. Have you ever visited the Torre del Cerrano, an ancient defense by the Turks?

Torre Cerrano is one of the ancient coastal towers of the Kingdom of Naples, it is located on the Adriatic coast, in the province of Teramo, between Silvi and Pineto. Torre Cerrano is one of the few examples that have remained intact of the dense network of coastal fortifications of the Kingdom of Naples, which had the function of repelling the frequent attacks by Turks and Saracens from the sea. Torre Cerrano, whose construction dates back to 1568, owes its name to the stream of the same name, which descends from the Atri hills and whose mouth is located 500 meters south of the tower, in the municipality of Silvi.
