The name Rovere comes from the Latin word “Robur”, an oak variety able to take root on the plateau of the fortresses even at very high altitudes. In the site, since Roman times, is attested the presence of a votive area along the Via Poplica-Campana that connected the cities of Amiternum and Aveia Vestina with Alba fucens. Having been a Benedictine farm takes on a key role in the territorial defensive system. It becomes a castrum, that is a small community defended by a ring of walls and a castle of which the building structures remain on the top of the hill on which the village stands. Rovere still retains all its ancient features, its position of pre-eminence on the high plateau of the fortresses offers breathtaking views and landscapes.
