In the Middle Ages Montegridolfo was a cassero (fortified burg, known from 1148) contended between the Montefeltro and Malatesta families. In 1137 it was largely rebuilt to its present state after a destruction by Ferrantino Novello Malatesta, who had allied with the Montefeltro. After a short period under Cesare Borgia, it was acquired by the Republic of Venice, which in turn ceded it to the Papal States in the early 150910.

During World War II, Montegridolfo was across the Gothic Line.
