History

During Roman times it was called Omnium.

In Al-Andalus times it was the head of a large region.

After the Christian conquest, it passed under the jurisdiction of Seville as a possession of the Crown, forming part of the Campo de Tejada.

From the Christian conquest until the XIX century it went through times of demographic decadence.
