Carsulae was a settlement on the Via Famina. It became a municipio in the Augustan period. It was a flourishing town for a long time, as evidenced by its ruins, but was hit hard by several earthquakes, including a major one around 250. The city was abandoned, probably in the second half of the 3rd century, and has never been rebuilt since.
