It was the ancient Roman Lacíbula and named, later on, by the Arabs, Ben-Zalema, a border city of the Nazarit kindom of Granada which preserves ruins of a crenelated wall from that time.

In 1485, it was reconquered, and its resettlement starts at the beginning of the XVI century on the initiative of the Duke of Arcos. Its great economical peak of the XVII and XVIII centuries, thanks to agriculture, cattle raising and the fabrics industry, which produced the famous blanket of Grazalema, causes its population to grow and the formation of the very important hamlet and the great tourist attraction it currently is.
