Etruscan tombs from the 8th - 6th c. BCE have been found in the hills north of Trevignano. Well-preserved artifacts from two of these tombs are on display at the Museo Civico Etrusco Romano, located on the ground floor of the town hall on Piazza V. Emanuelle III.
The Castle was erected around 1200 by order of Pope Innocent III, and later reinforced by the Orsini. It once had 3 layers of massive walls, but the siege of Cesare Borgia in 1497 and subsequent earthquakes have reduced the structures to a state of poor-repair.
It was the country home of Professor Ernest Nash. It is also a sailing town, with many clubs offering training in water activities.
