Historic info

The intense Turkish invasions were the cause of the Towers building in Forio. The area of Cierco was suitable to host these structures for its streets, very small hard to pass across. The tower of Via Morgera, private property, offered refuge and defence to the inhabitants of the zone. Camouflaged among buildings, nowadays the tower is good hidden, also because of the many changes.
