Located in a dominant position, 1 km away from the historic center, the Fortress was built starting in 1367 a.C. by the Spanish Cardinal Egidio Alvarez Albornoz, to restore the Papal hegemony on the central Italian territories at the end of the Avignonese captivity. The construction of the fortress is attributed to Matteo Gattaponi from Gubbio, a trusted military architect of the Spanish Cardinal Albornoz. In the centuries various Castellans commanded the fortress and also Popes such as Boniface IX and Niccolò V were hosted within its walls.
