It is an imposing rectangular castle tower, formerly owned by the Lords of Appiano, later by the Lords of Arco. Finally, the Counts Lodron took over Castel Romano in the 14th century. They extended the castle and added renaissance residential buildings.
Castel Romano was plundered several times and levelled to the ground during the first World War. Work on restoration and consolidation has only begun in recent years: the entrance was fixed, some rooms were restored and valuable treasures were recovered. The gardens have also been restored, now cultural events take place regularly.
The castle is accessible only by guided tour.
