Castle hill has been inhabited since the 5th millennium B.C. The people of ancient Roman Poetovio built a fortress and several temples. In the early middle ages there was a Slavic cemetery.
The medieval fortress was built in the 11th century when the castle and the town were in possession of the archdiocese of Salzburg. Archbishops later on let the castle to the Lords of Ptuj. The latter in there hundred year's period established a Minorite and Dominican monastery and built a roman church on top of mountain Ptuj.
