Castle Brown Portofino
The History Behind Castello Brown

The castle was founded in the early 15th century and was used to defend the surrounding area from attacks. It was well preserved throughout the centuries and was eventually purchased by the English Consul Montague Yeats Brown in 1867. With the advice of the engineer Pietro Tamurelli and Alfredo de Andrade, they turned the fortress into a gorgeous, stunning villa that eventually held the Consul’s wedding. Castello Brown is now a museum owned and run by the Portofino municipality.
