Peopled by the guanches from before the conquest, it belonged to the area of Abona.
In July of 1798 it separates from Vilaflor. Its temple was built in 1799 and up until that date its dwellers had to travel to Granadilla to receive their blessings. It was rebuilt later on with a nave and four collateral chapels.
Up until the 40’s of the XX century the people were practically isolated, the same as the neighbouring municipalities, from the rest of the island. Its inhabitants also fought to obtain water which they achieved in the middle of the century.
