Costruito nel 1560, per volontà di Bonifacio Caetani, e venne ultimato nel 1574. Il palazzo, i cui lavori furono diretti dall'architetto Francesco da Volterra fu fatto erigere sulle rovine dell'antica rocca dei Frangipane, di cui ha inglobato una torre quadrata in pietra, l'unico edificio sfuggito alle devastazioni precedenti.
I Caetani ne fecero la loro residenza principale per il dominio sui loro latifondi nelle paludi pontine e chiamarono ad abbellire la residenza diversi artisti come i fratelli Federico e Taddeo Zuccari, Girolamo Siciolante da Sermoneta e Stefano Duperac.
