The first records of the castle date back to around 1000AD, when a ‘manor’ was upgraded into a castle. After the House of Savoy acquired the castle in the 16th century, the fortification was improved, until 1630 when  Thomas Francis, Prince of Carignano, founder of the Carignano branch of the House of Savoy, suspended them. In the late 18th century, further renovations began, adding stucco and other neoclassical decoration to the castle. 

In 1904, the last King of Italy, Umberto II, who reigned until the end of the monarchy in 1946,  was born here.
