The region must have been inhabited in Roman times, though insufficient relics exist to determine an exact period.
Its name appears in records for the first time at the end of the 15th century, when the Catholic Monarchs awarded land in "the Pizarra area" to Don Pedro Romero in return for capturing Alora.
