   The other villas and Romanesque tombs found in this term give us the first references about the origins of this population.

   The XVIII century was, as in many villages of the region, a grow thing and expanding period.

   The main activity of this population was the production of vines and wines, and also the dry land agriculture characteristic of the zone: almond trees, olive trees, hazels and cereals. The plain lands allow the good use of agriculture.

CITY COUNCIL.jpg (60196 bytes)   The important production of wine gives rise to the creation of liquor factories at the XIX century, which will complete the wine-producing activity of the village.

   The streets are flat and the houses short. They are located on a hill that headlines vast landscape. Many of the streets are drawn up in the direction of the country field, from where a nice perspective can be appreciated.

   In the unevenness of the hill, old entrance halls and the wall rests are preserved.
