Torri in Sabina is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rieti in the Italian region Latium, located about 50 kilometres (31 mi) north of Rome and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) southwest of Rieti. Located on a ridge of the Monti Sabini, it is part of the Sabina traditional region.

Sights include the Romanesque church of Santa Maria della Lode a Vescovìo (9th century), which houses a 13th-14th century fresco of the Universal Judgement. The bell tower dates from the 10th-11th century, and was built using remains from the ancient Forum Novum.
