Archeological findings are evidence that this village has been inhabited since early Neolithic times (3000 B.C). Its natural caverns were populated by cavemen until about 870 AD, when raids by corsairs forced the inhabitants to abandon the area. It was then populated again in the 16th and 17th century, when the Knights started building fortifications along the coast which protect the inhabitants who wanted to exploit the fertile valleys and seas.
