History

In the Middle Ages it was a borderline that suffered constant Christian incursions, hostility and robbery on the hands of the Castilian horsemen stationed in Cazorla who would attack the Muslim AREA. The Duke gave this AREA to his captain, D. Pedro Martí­nez, who built the first home. The farmers of these lands were the first inhabitants.
After the disentailment of Mendizábal, this village became an independent municipality.
