The origins of the town are very old (the Samnites called it Aeclanum) and it was destroyed and rebuilt many times during the centuries.
Only in 1340 its name became as we know it today. Very interesting are the ruins of the Samnite settlement which became in 89 AD a roman Municipium. Not to be missed is the "feast of the Obelisco" celebrated on the third Saturday of September in honour of the Virgin Mary.
