What we see today is a large construction built between 1468 and1636. It is thought there was an early bronze age hillfort (around 2000 BC) at the place of this castle. In the Middle Age the Venetian built another building. It was destroyed in the XIV century. Between 1468-1471 Fredrick III of Absburg built another constuction on that site. Other works were made by the Venetians from 1508 to 1509. The castle was completed in 1630 with the buildings of the bastions and the walls.

The museum inside the castle is made up of a furnished room and the Casa del Capitano. This is the oldest building in the castle. It houses a collection of weaponry, some furniture and other things. Temporary exibitions are held at the castle.

Once you visited the museum you can stroll on the ramparts on the castle to enjoy a beautiful landscape over the city.

Inside the large courtyard various concerts and shows are held.
