By archeological remains it is known that the Phoenicians occupied the population, but it was the Greeks who called the Prunna people.

Pruna was annexed to the Roman Empire in the first stage of the conquest of the peninsula. In the Muslim era it was an alqueria or rural village, pertaining to the Kingdom of Taifas of Seville. In 1482, Pruna was sold to Don Rodrigo Ponce de León.

By sovereign Decree of August 6, 1821, Pruna joins the nation as Constitutional City Council.
