History

Its origins seem to go back to the Tartessian locality of Callí­cula or Carula, mentioned by Pliny.
Numerous artefacts from the Roman and Mozarab periods have been found in the AREA.
The ruins of the castle correspond to the period of Al-Andalus.
The first historic document that has references to the village has to do with the division of Seville by the king Alphonso X.
Following the Christian conquest it passed to the Order of Calatrava, and later to the Osuna domain. At present the main activity of the villagers is farming and the production of olive oil, along with the breeding of fighting bulls.
