The building of the palace castle, which has been transformed into the Kaštel Hotel, was rather altered in comparison with its original 17th century form. The Renaissance palace was owned by the Polesini family, a powerful noble family, whose descendants resided in the castle for generations. Apart from Motovun, the Polesinis had large estates in Zamask, Motovunski Novaki and Poreč.
