The castle of Petreto was mentioned for the first time in writings, which date back to 1274, about the occasion of the division between the two branches of the Counts Aldobrandeschi (Earl of Saint Fiora and of Sovana) and it was submitted to the dominion of the Earl of Saint Fiora.
Transformed in Franciscan oratory, the castle was subdued to the Republic of Siena in 1339.
It seems that the oratory has entertained St. Bernardino from Siena in 1422.
In 1507 the count Guido Sforza opened the convent with its relative church dedicated to St. Pietro to the Petreto.
The convent part is, at present, a private property whereas the church is part of Scansano’s parish property.
