This castle dates back to the XVth century, when Monti became an independent fief under Giovan-Spinetta, marquess of Monti and son of Giovan-Spinetta, marquess of Villafranca. The latter probably originated the erection of the castle, on the bank of the Taverone, main point of a large area including Monti, Panicale, Licciana Bastia, Tarrarossa, Podenzana and Suvero territories. It is the castle where Spinetta il Grande was imprisoned during the XIVth century.
