  A truly ancient castle dating back to medieval times, destined to have been a constant bone of contention through the centuries due to its uniquely strategic position. Situated right on the border between the provinces of Romagna and Marche, on the border of the lands belonging to two noble families, the Malatesta of Rimini and the Montefeltro, Lords of nearby Urbino. It all started in the XIII century when the castle was chosen as a residence by the Gridolfi family. From that moment and for the next three centuries the Conca valley saw a never ending struggle between the two families. As a result the castle kept changing hands, was repeatedly sacked and suffered great strife at every turn. Indeed in 1336 it was totally destroyed by Nolfo, count of Urbino. The following year was reconstructed by the patriarch of the Malatesta family, Galeotto. Peace was only restored in the XVI century and since then the Malatesta family has remained “absolute sovereign”.
