History

There is archaeological evidence of the Roman settlement of FonticulanumFact|date=March 2008 down on the Aterno river. In the Middle Ages a castle was built on top of the hill and the population moved up there. The condottiero Braccio da Montone ("Fortebraccio") (1368-1424) tried and failed to capture the castle in the 14th century.

Today you can see a wonderful and well conserved historical centre.Many fragments of ancient monuments are displayed in the L'Aquila museum.
