To take it off from the soldiers of the Malatesta, San Marino – in agreement with the troops of Montefeltro – besieged its walls for a long time, and on the order of Federico d’Urbino, the castle was even dismantled.
the ruins were recovered only two centuries later, in 1647, by the rector of the nearby church which was outside the walls.
