History

The Phoenicians populated these lands and worked the mines in the surrounding areas.

During Roman times it was known as Ad Rubras. It is mentioned in the "Itinerary of Antonino" and it was on the road to Merida,

With the treaty of Badajoz in 1267 in which the lands between the Guadiana and the Guadalquivir passed to the crown of Castile, the population went on to depend on the county of Niebla.

The village was razed to the ground in the middle of the XVII century and repopulated by old inhabitants.
