The castle is situated on the island of Sant'Andrea, at the entrance of the port city.  The building, designed as a defensive outpost of the city and its port, was started in February of 1481 by Ferrante d'Aragona, which was responsible for the construction of a quadrangular Tower.  

When Ferrante of Aragon began the construction of the fortress on the island of Sant'Andrea the Turks were holed up in the town of Otranto. Ottoman raids continued to threaten the lands of Puglia and the danger of a Turkish landing in Brindisi appeared increasingly imminent.

After a few years (1485) the Duke of Calabria, Alfonso of Aragon, transformed this first defensive core in a real castle. The fortress was then extended toward the North-East with the addition of powerful antemurali and bastions. For added safety, the fortress was completely isolated with the opening on the East side of a canal. In 1492 the castle was completed with the construction of the great Hall on the first floor and galleries turn downstairs casks. 
In 1558 were started work on the construction of the Fort in order to defend their part of the island remained undefended and avoid new enemy raids after the attack by the Venetian ships in 1528. 
In 1577, two powerful bastions connected the Fort to the primitive fortress. Was so closed the ancient defence channel, forming the current dock.

The use of reddish cavato Island carparo earned him the nickname fortress Castello Rosso.
