Originally populated by the Romans, Barchi became a fortified town in the Middle Age, becoming part of the Mondavio Vicariate; in 1400 the town was under the Duke of Montefeltro from Urbino, and in 1531 it became independent.  Barchi was completely rebuilt at the end of 1500 by the architect Filippo Terzi and thanks to the Duke Guidobaldo II della Rovere, the town became part of the Papal State until 1860.
