Torre di Rio is the cliff immediately south of Rio Marina harbour, cut by the road (here for pedestrians only) leading to Porticciolo. Santa Filomena is a place besides the road, 40 m above the cliff. In some older references, this area is named "Monte della Torre": this is the hill above Santa Filomena.

The area forms part of the "Rio Marina Skarns", that are mainly composed of massive hedenbergite and ilvaite.
