One of the ancient towers of the Kingdom of Naples on the picturesque coast of Abruzzo
There are many points of interest and places to discover along the Abruzzo coastline. Those who want to explore this area rich in history and charm should not miss a visit to the Torre del Cerrano, immersed in the greenery of a large pine forest close to the beach.
We are in the province of Teramo, a short distance from the town of Pineto. It is one of the ancient coastal towers dating back to the Kingdom of Naples, built with the aim of defending the territory and nipping in the bud the frequent raids by Saracens and corsairs.
The tower is now part of a marine protected area covering 3,431 hectares, starting with the square that includes the building itself and the stretch of sea in front of it. Still perfectly preserved, the Cerrano Tower can be admired from the outside and also visited inside, where it houses museums and exhibitions such as the International Veterinary Training Centre, a large library and the Maritime Museum.
