History

The town first makes its appearance as Treba, a place of the Aequi, and later was called Treba Augusta to help distinguish it from Trebiae (Trevi in Umbria). The town was a bishopric from 499 to 1060; in the 15th century, it was sacked by Alfonso V of Aragon.

What to see

  • The church of Santa Maria Assunta
  • Oratory of San Pietro (the St. Peter in question is not the apostle, but a local hermit)
  • Oratory of Santa Maria del Riposo, with 15th-century frescoes.
