Cervinara was first mentioned in a document that dates back to 837.
People settled around the fortress that was built during the Lombard domination. Over the succeeding centuries, ownership of the castle passed from hand to hand - Matilde de Hauteville, Roberto de Molinis, Isabella de Chauville and Giovanni della Leonessa.
The Caracciolos were the last family who ruled over Cervinara until the abolition of feudalism in 1806.
The Castle in Cervinara was certainly an imposing building, nevertheless, only its ruins, the keep and parts of the outer ward's curtain have survived to the present day.
