Traces of a pre-Roman settlement were found on Mount Pallano, though the first mention of the place was in the early 14th century. It was under the de Tibur, de Galiberto and de Anichino families, and later a feud of the Scotṛ, the Caravita and Adimari families. In the 19th century Bomba gave birth to the brothers Silvio (a patriot) and Bertrando Spaventa (philosopher).
