History

Its importance has been known about for centuries for the milling and transportation of minerals. There are abundant Iberian and Phoenician remains. It was an old punic trading post on the Huelva Estuary.

Its origins go back to Al-Andalus times.

The Delimitation and Boundary Letter (La Carta de Deslinde y Amojonamiento), 1268, is from the times of Alfonso X. Subsequently it went on to depend on the House of Medina Sidonia which carried out an intense repopulation process.
