History

The name of this village originates from the Latin word pampinus, meaning "vine shoot", which refers to the luxuriance of its lands watered by the river Poqueira.

The history of the area that because of its geographical isolation has developed its own characteristic culture. It had its moment of splendour under the Arab Andalusian period when all of the Alpujarra was an important agricultural centre, specializing in silk production.

After the Christian re-conquest of Granada in 1492 by the Catholic Monarchs, the population suffered to an unbearable extreme and thus, in 1568, Hernando de Córdoba y Válor, a rich landowner proclaimed himself as Abén Humeya, uprising against Phillip ll, causing a general revolt amongst the Moors from all over the kingdom of Granada.

Internal disagreements amongst the Moors, who in 1569 assassinated Abén Humeya, allowed Don Juan de Austria to terminate this revolt.

The Moors were eventually expelled in 1609.

The area that is now inhabited dates back to the 16th century, when it was repopulated by families from the kingdoms of León and Galicia.
