Originally a Moorish settlement built upon a ridge on a route between the castles of Zalia and Comares. Then after the reconquest owned by an administrator of the Catholic Church. Then in more recent times, occupied by smugglers (controbandistas) after the civil war. It was abandoned in the 1980s when the families moved up to the village of Los Romanes which had received mainswater, sewage and electricity. In 1992 it was purchased by the present owner who commenced the labour of love being the renovation and letting of properties for rural tourism.
