The castle was often victim of attacks by Barbarians but it turned out always impregnable.

In the XI sec. the fief passed to the Counts Cortesi, noble of Germanic origin who kept it until 1225, year in which passed to Ancona. It then made part of the Papal State until its annexation the Reign of Italy (1860).

Sirolo is a medieval village of rare beauty surrounded by encircled intact walls interrupted only by a tower with battlements and a Gothic-medioeval door.
