Built in a dominant position with a view that spans up to Novara and the Canavese area, this Castle was first mentioned in the thirteenth century, but it is assumed that the fortification existed since the early Middle Ages.

During the sixteenth century, it was under the rule of the Savoy family. The military role it had was essential in the seventeenth century, but subsequently, it was used exclusively for residential purposes.

Unfortunately, a series of fires in the early nineteenth century destroyed the Castle. However, its subsequent restorations, the last started in 1972, brought it back to its original splendor.

Today it overlooks the plain, and the double circle of walls proves its role of domination, control, and defense of the territory and features an ancient central core connected to two towers.
