The castle rises at the center of the little medieval suburb of Bastia, crowning a hill of 500 meters high, above the town of Licciana Nardi, in the valley of the Taverone river (high Lunigiana). It is located in a strategical position in the valley that in the Middle Age was crossed by an important road, point of forced passage between the regions of Liguria and Tuscany and the Emilia-Romagna. The whole territory and all its castles, as the whole Lunigiana, were subjected to the dominion of the feudal family of the Malaspina, that strengthened this zone to take all the advantages that this important road of communication offered, first of all the imposition of tributes to the travelers.
