It was an important Muslim settlement, due to its fortress which was built at the highest part of the lands and which became an almost impregnable place. These are merits to be added to the conquest which took place in 1327 by the troops of King Alfonso XI. In the middle of the XIV century, the village passed to the feudal estate of the Pérez de Guzmán. After several changes in the ownership of the land, the last lords of the village, by now in the XIX century were the Dukes of Osuna.

Alfonso XII gave the village the title of city in 1877
