The "Castrum Ligabitij" or "Ligabicij" is quoted in a papal bull since 998 and probably derives by the name of the Castle's founder. It followed the destiny of the surrounding Castles: first under the Church of Ravenna, and then under the Town of Rimini in struggle with the town of Pesaro.
The Church of Sant'Ermete was built within the Castle and was subject to the parish of San Cristoforo. It seems to be of Romanesque style, while the bell tower is more recent. Within it there are a 15th century wooden Crucifix and the 15th century "Madonna del latte" from the school of the Marche and by an unknown author.
After the last war, only some parts of the Castle remained: pieces of walls and the entrance. Today, nothing has been preserved.
