This small rectangular residential fortress, formerly known as castrum Ciges December, the date of the eleventh century when Arnau Mir de Tost deployed the defensive power of his master, Count of Urgell Ermengol. Thanks to its strategic location, became the protagonist in the struggle and the progress towards Christian lands of the Muslim Hispania. Although its origin dates to the eleventh century, most of the elements are preserved in the fourteenth century. 

Since its origin the castle remained in the hands of the same family lineage, though under different titles. Thus, as the German brain, Josa, the Bank, the needle Pino and recently Sentmenat, Calvo de Encalada and February have possessed dominion over the place, and the barony on nearby Castle Florejacs the whose history has passed parallel to the silos for almost a thousand years. From the second third of the twentieth century, the castle passed into the hands of the Canals family, who has assumed the task of consolidating the building and adapt to new times. Today, the castle stands with the aim of becoming the core of promotion of cultural, recreational and social activities.
