                      History of Castello Brown

                      Built in the Middle Ages to defend Portofino against pirates, Castello Brown has a perfect defence position, high above harbour. Cannon batteries were installed on the site in the early 16th century, and down the centuries, Castello Brown has been enlarged and rebuilt several times.

                      In 1867, Montague Yeats Brown, a British diplomat in Genoa, bought Castello Brown for 7,000 lire and turned it into a private villa. It was then that the fortress became known as Castle Brown. The home stayed in Brown's family until 1949 when it was sold to an English couple, Colonel and Mrs John Baber, who then sold it to the City of Portofino. The fortress opened its doors to visitors in 1961.

                      Stay within easy reach of the must-see Castello Brown to make the most of your stay in the Portofino area.
