Not far away from Teramo you find Campli, medieval village of rare beauty. Its history however begins already in the bronze age with the first human settlements in the territory of Campli proved also by the discovery of the necropoli (ancient cemetery) of Campovalano (X-VI sec.). It was then annexed to the republic of Rome and fought to its flank against Hannibal.
After the temporal suspension due to the fall of Rome, Campli appears in a document of 894 regarding a land change, concluded between count Adalberto and the bishop Giovanni D' Apruzio.
It followed the phenomenon of the "incastellamento" (becoming a castle in order words) with the construction of one town walls that was opened in the six doors of the village. It made part of the Reign of Naples knowing a period of economic development. In 1306 was founded the convent of S. Francesco and subsequently it was built the Hospital (1390).
