The town's name celebrates Raimondo di Attone di Aspello, who in the early XIV century, had a fortress built in this area. Municipality in the province of Macerata, located in the valley of the river Potenza and surrounded by green hills, the area is rich in noble residences and villas, castles, fortresses and churches, thus offering the visitor history, art and unspoiled landscapes. It is also a geat starting point for interesting excursions, such as those to: the Park of the Monti Sibillini, the Castle of Lanciano, the district of Crispiero, surrounded by fortified walls of the XIII century and the village of Castel Santa Maria.
The first evidence of a settlement is certified by the discovery of artifacts dating back to the Mesolithic Ages and traces of Roman times. The town itself was founded in 1311, when the rector of the Marquisate of Ancona was appointed by the Church to build a fortification to defend the nearby valley from the incursions of enemy cities. Castelraimondo linked to Guelph town of Camerino, was scenario of clashes with the San Severino and the Matelica historically Ghibellines, primarily because it occupied a very strategic position. The continuous battles ruined several buildings and compromised the artistic heritage of the center: as evidenced by the fact that of the ancient and complex defensive system remains only the "Càssero", a watch tower, 44 meters tall, which allowed the inhabitants to communicate with their allies and supporters.
