The Feudal castle was erected in the X century approximately by the counts of Ventimiglia and belonged then to the noble family of the Doria. Anciently the structure was equipped with two square towers, very similar to the castle of Dolceacqua, until later one of two towers remained standing was transformed in the bell tower of the nearby church of the purification of the Virgin Mary.
