Probably the village has pre-hellenistic origins; it was in fact hellenized in the IV century B.C. as the old Aluntium.

In 1601 Roberto il Guiscardo founded the Norman castle for defending and controlling territory which is from Capo d'Orlando to San Fratello and round it rose the town centre.

From the XV century to 1812, that is to the abolition of feudal duties, the village has been county of Filangeris princes of Mirto.
