History - the Middle Ages
Then the village was granted to Provenzale de Bruveriis. The origin of the name can be traced to when Anna de Bruveriis had Carife and San Nicola built at the foot of Trevico in defense of her fief. At the time the centre was known as San Nicola ad Salices (St. Nicholas near willows). The wife of Robert of Anjou sold it to Count Raimondo Del Balzo, and many feudal lords followed until 1806, when feudal rights were abolished.
