Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 42 D4 Grotte di Torri

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Grotte di Torri

The site of Grotte di Torri is noted especially for the presence of a tract of massive polygonal walling, a portion of which now supports a nineteenth century farmhouse. These well built walls have given rise to much speculation about the ancient name and nature of the site. Early work was carried out here by Pierluigi Galletti (1757). Ludovico Prosseda produced important drawings of the site for the Monumenti Sabini, published in 1827 by Giuseppe Antonio Guattini.
