The first document known to date mentions the presence of the Castle in 1216.
A true fortified village, the Castle maintained its characteristic of territorial garrison for many centuries, determined by its proximity to the Fosso Bergamasco, which in the first half of the 15th century became the border between the State of Milan and the Republic of Venice.
Since the 16th century, the castle has been one of the main residences of the Secco Suardo family, who, through the various generations, have continued to live there and left their marks and evidence of the various historical, professional and personal events.
Today, the Secco Suardo Castle presents itself as an articulated ensemble of buildings developed around the rectangular internal courtyard and other buildings directly connected to the main body, which surround the complex.
The garden, transformed into a Botanical Garden at the end of the 18th century, still preserves some rare and valuable species of trees and plants.
The entire complex rests on a vast ramification of dungeons and tunnels, with barrel vaults and various mouths, perhaps an indication of a different level of habitation in ancient times.
