The name "Castello Brown" derives from Montague Yeats Brown, English consul in Genoa and owner of the building from 1867 to 1905, but its origins date back to the Middle Ages when the Genoese erected it, in a dominant position on the sea to defend the Gulf of Portofino. .
Over the centuries it has undergone several renovations and enlargement works by prominent people and historical significance such as Gian Maria Oliato and Napoleone Bonaparte. In 1867, the English Consul Brown bought the Fortress and in 1870 he planted on the main terrace, himself for his wedding day, the two famous pines that have dominated the town from above for years, becoming symbols and distinctive elements of the Castle. The Consul died in 1905, bequeathing the Castle to his sons, who guarded it until 1949, giving it to the Baber family, and over time transforming this military fortress into a civil residence.
In 1961 the Municipality of Portofino bought the Castle from the Baber family, starting to use its spaces to host different types of public and private events.
