History of a community

In 1013 it relied on Denia, which was stated independent Kingdom of Taifa in this year, and also in 1535 it came to be a rectory of Moriscos. In 1643, with just around 35 next-door neighbors, it passed to the territory of Denia. In the mid-nineteenth century there were 520 occupants and the community had a consistorial residence, two small squares, a tavern, a supermarket, an institution of initial letters and also a church. People worked in the areas, expanding wheat, barley, corn, carob, raisins, figs, almonds and various other fruits as well as producing wine as well as oil.

Recently the town has actually expanded a whole lot and also now has concerning 1,900 residents.
