Regarding the castle’s foundation, there is no trustworthy information. The first historical document is a papal bull issued by Pope Alexander III in 1173 that mentions the castle as being a part of the Chieti diocese. Jacopo Caldora was compelled to build a new castle in the 15th century, which his son Antonio chose to use as a base while waging war against Ferdinand of Aragon, who eventually took control of the castle at the conclusion of the military campaign, due to the original fort’s strategic location on the highest part of the town and controlling the entire valley of the Sangro river.
