Historical Notes

The first documented mention of the fortress during the Middle Ages dates back to the second half of the 12th century and belonged to Earl Filippo Balbano, who sent soldiers to the Holy Land.

In the course of the centuries, under the Angevins and the Aragonese, the Castle underwent several changes in order to adapt its defensive structure to the changing military situation.

After the devastating earthquake of 1694, the fief passed to Carlo Logni, whose descendants ruled Caposele until the abolition of feudalism in 1806. In the second half of the 16th century the Castle was turned into a noble residence.

There have been several other major earthquakes hitting Caposele throughout the years and the Castle is now in a very dilapidated state.
