This castle was built in a strategic location, on a steep cliff overlooking the whole valley and nearby town. It is a rare example of “castello gemino” or twin castle, composed of two similar buildings enclosed by the same walls.

Built in the 13th century, most likely by the De Piro family who were originally from Como, it was destroyed in the 16th century during the Grisons’ occupation.

Today there is very little left of the military outpost, but it is still worth a visit to admire
the breathtaking view on the Valtellina Alps from the top of the hill and enjoy the solemn
atmosphere of the imposing ruins.

The castle formerly belonged to the Reschigna Kettlitz family, who revitalised wine-making in the Grumello area and who still organise wine tours, but since 1987 the castle itself has been entrusted to the FAI (Italian National Trust) which has overseen the partial renovations and uses it to host different types of cultural events.
