The castle was founded before 1250 and was originally used by king's family as a hunting residence. Later the castle changed the owners who adjusted it into their needs. Many additional and rebuilt parts show the evidence of it. While amendment work in the 17th century the courtyard was supplemented by arcades and arches in the rooms were changed. At that period the castle was residence of Lupca nobility. The property was changed into an orphanage after the fire in 1860, and during the last regime there were nuns placed in the castle.
