The story of Torre Vado:
Torre Vado is developed,year after year,around a Saracen tower of the’500.The Spanish has built fortifications from Naples to S.Maria di Leuca to the Abruzzi to defend their country against the Turkish and the Saracens landings.This tower gaved the name to the locality;there aren’t documents that can explain the etymology of the place-name.
The most accredited interpretations remembered the Latin origin from “vadum=guado” thanks to the existence of a little natural landing-place placed at the foot of the tower;on the contrary a Spanish interpretation let derive the name from “ovado” because of the notefishiness of the marine sounding-depth.
