The origins of Sangineto are very ancient. The small town in the province of Cosenza consists of two settlements: the characteristic ancient town located on the hills, and the Lido (Le Crete district) laying along the coast. The hill town has very ancient origins and dates back to the colonization of Southern Italy by the Oenotrians. The first fixed settlement was established by a group of people from Civitas, a town destroyed by the Benevento Lombards around 680. They survived the massacre and sought refuge and protection near the castle.
