In its surroundings, archaeological remains from the Neolithic era and the Bronze Age have been found, as have vestiges of construction from the Roman era, which speaks to the antiquity of the settlement. However, the town of Los Gallardos has been known as such since the 16th century. Its name originates from the surname of several of its first inhabitants.
