Things to do: museums
Torricella Sicura is a town and comune in the province of Teramo, in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It is located in the natural park known as the "Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park".GeographyThe town is located about 4mi from the provincial capital of Teramo. It is divided into neighborhoods : Torricella OscuraTorricella Scarpone - the area surrounding the town castleTorricella Romana - the area surrounding the house of the illustrious Romani familyTorricella Case Nuove - area in which homes have most recently been constructedCentro - town centreHistoryThe town most likely takes the first part of its name from an ancient castle once found just to the north. The local gentry still refer to this area as "lu castille" (the castle). In the late 18th century there is mention of an underground tunnel that led from the castle to the surrounding countryside. Legend has it that somewhere in this area is an enormous grotto containing a vast treasure under the watchful of an enormous serpent. The second part of the town's name, "Sicura" is thought to be a derivation of "Sicula", with reference to an indigenous people living in the area in the first millennium BCE.Surrounding the town are vestiges of Roman Empire and High Middle Ages epochs. Also present are temple ruins, ancient Roman graves, and a mysterious altar dedicated to an unknown deity. One monumental inscription is dedicated to the High Priestess "Numisia" and others speak of the presence of a thermal bathhouse.
