History of Arriate


It is believed that in Prehistorical times there were some residents in this area, who lived in caves dug into the rock. According to the legend, during the Arab domination, there was a small town in the area called Arriadh, (the verjeles) due to the abundance of water and its vegetation. There is also evidence that in 1407 there was a battle between Muslims in the Valley of Arriate and the first written document dates from 1570 where the Villa de Arriate is mentioned in the census of Felipe II. The town depended on Ronda until the year 1661 when it obtained its independence by buying the neighbours the municipal area and its jurisdiction.
