The castle was originally built by the Saracens around the year 1000, but since then nothing has been preserved. Later it was owned by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II who imprisoned here his son Henry.

Henry was buried in the cathedral of Cosenza and in 1908 his remains were examined by scientists. Damage caused by leprosy was revealed on the bones and the initial theory of imprisonment may be incorrect. A father could just keep his son locked up taking care of him.
