The castle, which was recently restored by its current owners, dates back to the 11th century. It was first mentioned in a document from 1413 regarding expansion works conducted by Filippo Maria Visconti of Milan.

The castle is situated in a park near the Borbera torrent, and belonged originally to the Ratti Opizzoni family. Towards the end of 1800, the cardinal Achille Ratti, later Pope Pio XI, asked permission to adopt the Ratti Opizzoni family crest (due to owning the same surname).

Thus, the crest also became Pope Ratti's, who in turn bestowed a ducal title on the family. The castle is directly connected to the adjacent hamlet via the old San Bernardo Abbey.
