During the Middle Ages, it was the house of the Aldobrandeschi family. It was almost entirely rebuilt in the early 19th century by the architect Lorenzo Porciatti. It is now a Neo-Gothic building with ogival mullioned windows and merlons in the upper part of the walls.
It houses the seat of the Province of Grosseto.
