The date of the beginning of the construction works for this Castle is known: 1170. Built for military and defensive purposes, it was later transformed into a noble residence and subsequently into an agricultural and economic center.

Several expansions were made over the centuries. One of them was the construction of a 48-meter-high tower (one of the highest buildings in the province) shortly after the middle of the fifteenth century. The tower was subsequently damaged by lightning at the beginning of 1700 and repaired a little more than two centuries later.
