During the Roman domination it was the battlefield of the Civil Wars between Pompey and Cesar.
It was in the vicinity of the village that Alphonso VI of Castille was defeated in 1084.
The Christian conquest was undertaken by Ferdinand III in 1254. Seven years later, in 1261, the village was recovered by the Muslims. In 1283 it was definitely reconquered for the Christians by the troops of Alphonso X, who destroyed the castle that the Arabs had built.
