Tortorici is an ancient village, immersed in the splendid nature of the Nebrodi Park, which rises in the Valle dell'Ingegno, so called for having given birth to several illustrious characters.
According to tradition, Tortorici was founded by a follower of Aeneas . It reached its maximum splendor in the fourteenth century, a period in which the village was enriched with churches and palaces. The terrible flood of 1682 unfortunately wiped out part of its artistic and monumental heritage.
Today Tortorici retains its original medieval appearance, with narrow paved streets, portals, fountains, churches and beautiful buildings, and houses works of art of considerable artistic value.
