The construction of the castle dates back to around 1283. There are records of Calcino Tornielli taking possession of the castle in 1312. The structure remained intact despite the terrible struggles and battles fought at that time. Renovation and extension work was carried out in 1470. The gate tower with the drawbridge dates back to that period.

At present the castle consists of four ‘bodies’: the front part is located towards the hamlet of Vergano and it has a large round-vaulted window with a decoration surmounted by the noble coat of arms of the Tornielli family.

The northern part is currently used as a private residence.
