History

Lying along the banks of the Liri River, at the entrance to the Valle di Roveto, over the millennia Sora was an important crossroads for trade that took place between the neighboring communities. The oldest part, inhabited by the Volsci, must have been on the heights of Monte San Castro where today stands the medieval Rocca Sorella. Entered the Roman orbit, it was conquered by them in 345 BC, and contended repeatedly by the Samnites.
With the advent of Christianity it was declared a bishopric and enriched with numerous churches that replaced the pagan altars. Autonomous county, in 970, it was occupied by the Normans in 1062. During the reign of the Lords it suffered the disputes of the various Houses.
In the Napoleonic period, however, it was the scene of fights between Sanfedisti and Giacobini. From the Unification of the kingdom, Sora too, like most of Central Southern Italy, experienced banditry: in fact, the gangs of King Francesco II raged there, incited by the terrible Luigi Alonzi known as Chiavone In 1915 a violent earthquake razed him to the ground, but natural resource of the river, exploited for electricity, helped the fate of this land that from the beginning of the twentieth century experienced a great economic-industrial expansion pursued over the years, so much so that today Sora is one of the most active realities of Ciociaria. The numerous monuments that survived the destruction of earthquakes deserve a visit of this elegant town crossed by bridges and riverside that invite you to stroll in the afternoon.
