Castiglione takes its name from The Norman Castle that was built in 1062, called Castel Leone: this castle became one of the most important defence works of the district, to defend the Gulf of Sant'Eufemia and the abbey of the same name. In 1214 the castle resisted a Saracen invasion. Due to the Saracen raids, the population fled to the mountains and hills, going to live inland thus the area became a lively agricultural area.
One entrance into the village is through an original stone archway the house is located just off the piazza from where there are commanding views of the sea, coastline and mountains.
