History[edit]

Near the town, which gets its name from the surrounding maple woods, at Monte Maggiore (1.430), there were found prehistoric and Roman remains. The Castello di Acera (The maple castle) was built in 1296 by a Podestà sent from Spoleto to unite the dispersed population of the villages Acera and Spina. After the Italian unification of 1860 it became part of Campello sul Clitunno.[2]
