It seems that the castle of Isnello has risen above a fortified Byzantine fence.
With the Norman conquest, the houses developed in the area below the castle has been surrounded by walls.
It is mentioned in ancient documents with the name of Asinello or Rocca di Asine.
Under Frederick II of Swabia it belonged to the baron Nicola Abate; it was subsequently sold to the Count of Geraci Francesco Ventimiglia.
Later it belonged to Abbone Filangeri and Arenaldo Santacolomba, whose heirs kept it until 1724.
Among the ruins of the castle stands a keep, part of the walls, some buried rooms and the remains of a small church with frescoed apses.
