Its origin is located in a Túrdulo village (íberos); they had their settlement in a place known as ‘The Castle’. Out of archaeological remains it is known that the Phoenicians occupied the village, but it was the Greeks who called it Prunna. With the pass of time it loses an ‘n’ and it happens to be called Pruna. Pruna was annexed to the Roman Empire in the first stage of the conquest of the peninsula. In the Muslim era, it was a farmstead or rural village, pertaining to the Kingdom of Taifas of Seville. In 1482 Pruna was sold to Don Rodrigo Ponce de León. Later, it would happen to be given away to the duchy of 16th century Arcos, time in which it was granted the rank of town, and in the 18th century it was passed down to the duchy of Osuna. By sovereign Decree of August 6, 1821, Pruna joins the nation as Constitutional City Council.
