The original castle was built in the 12th century and the oldest part of it is the Torre dei Leoni. In 1385 Niccolo II erected the others three towers (Marchesana at south-east, San Paolo at south-west and Santa Caterina on the north-east side). These towers were built for a military reason to protect the land of the Este's family.
