Inhabited since prehistory, it was later an Italic centre of the Frentani with the name of Juvanum, and in Roman times a municipium. In the Middle Ages it was under the Caldoras, and finally the d'Aquinos. World War two seriously damaged the centre, and was responsible for the destruction of the ancient Croce palace.
