History

Of Arabic origin.

From the remains found it can be seen that the first human settlement that we know about dates from prehistoric times. Dolmens have been found in its municipal area.

Phoenician and Roman remains have also been found.

In the times of repopulation there was great rivalry between this village and the neighbouring counties. As it was an ecclesiastical estate, it became head of all the land in possession of the Crown situated in the north of the County of Niebla.

Linked historically to the working of the mines in its surrounding area.
