There are definite records of the castle from the 12th century, firstly under the control of Barbarossa, then his son Enrico who passed it on to Genoa before it became the subject of bitter and violent disputes between Tortona, Genoa and Alessandria. In the seventeenth century, Vincenzo Fiorenzuola, an expert in military architecture, transformed the existing castle into a mighty fortress that could accommodate a garrison of 1,000 men.
