TORTORETO, Province of Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy
Tortoreto Alto still partly maintains its medieval structure with high walls, narrow alleys, the Clock Tower and the adjoining bridge which led into the fortress, now called Terravecchia, while a more recent part, called Terranova, is characterized by the "Torrione" and the two churches of Madonna della Misericordia and San Nicola.
Tortoreto Lido has a 4-mk long beach, extending south to the mouth of the Salinello river. The sea is clean, and the bottom gets deeper very slowly, so it is a safe place for children too, and can offer a quiet holiday among the golden sand, the green hills and blue sea.
