Where to stay
In the Middle Ages the place was one of the watchtower bulwarks of the nearby feuds of Montefusco and Montemiletto and was mentioned as "Turrecella" as early as 1280. In later documents it is mentioned as "Torre di Montefuscolo" because it was one of the castles that surrounded the barony of Montefusco.
