The village of Castiglione, located on a hillock to the left of the Magra, was called in the early Middle Ages of the Corbellari, from the name of the family that owned it. It became part of the Terziere from the 13th century,
Castiglione del Terziere, after being a possession of the Malaspina, passed in 1451 to the Republic of Florence, which made it the center of its expansionist policy in the upper Lunigiana, elevating it to the seat of the captaincy of justice.
The village is dominated by the castle originally from the VI-VII century. Characterized by a quadrangular tower, it was renovated in 1351 at the behest of Franceschino Malaspina, who obtained the lordship. Its period of maximum importance and development coincided with the domination of Castruccio Castracani, lord of Lucca, who established a stronghold here as part of the project to unite Lunigiana, Garfagnana, Lucchesia and Versilia in a single state.
The ancient church from the mid-16th century was abandoned in 1783 because it was unsafe. Only a few ruins remain, including the foundations still visible in some sections and ancient objects such as two holy water stoups, some altars, the baptismal font and some tombstones. On the site of the ancient church stands the war memorial and the old bell tower. The new church, also dedicated to San Leonardo, was built soon after under the push of Giovanni di Girolamo Corbellari and the parish priest Don Michele Pedroni, and was completed in 1787
