The country, although with a recent expansion downstream, has remained over time substantially steeped on the rocky slopes of Mount Morrone west and has retained its characteristic as a lookout of the Conca Peligna. In fact, its position allows an almost total view over the whole valley below and the walls of the ancient castle that rose majestically to guard the north side of the Conca Peligna are still visible. The pre-Roman fortification of Colle delle Fate, an archaeological site of great importance, and numerous other finds in the territory, among which substantial remains of Roman walls, testify to a settlement and frequentation of the ancient man, especially in the highlands. Roccacasale is remembered in documents from the twelfth century but already previously it can be hypothesized that one or more small settlements survived the Late Antiquity, given the highly strategic position.
