The town's name derives from the Latin word "robur" (Oak).
It is a municipality of the province of Verona, located in Val Squaranto, in a karst area rich in natural caves.
The area was inhabited since Prehistoric times, as evidenced by the numerous traces found, that date back to the Paleolithic Ages. Important witnesses have been unearthed that attest a period of Roman colonization. After the Fall of the Roman Empire, like most of the other areas of the region, the town submitted the raids of the Barbarians. There are several findings that indicate a period of Lombard domain. The town was mentioned for the first time in a document, which dates back to 866 and, subsequently, in one, dating from the XIII century, in which is reported the establishment of a group of German settlers from the area of Vicenza and the division of land in farms. Crucial for its development was the domain of the Serenissima Venetian Republic, which ended with Napoleon's conquest.
