The name of the town comes from the Latin Rus Elinorun, which indicated the territory of Eloro, an old Siracusan colony of the 7th century BC.

It belonged to the Platamones in the 15th century being a barony, but the inhabited settlement was founded by Francesco Moncada, prince of Lardaria, only in 1713, once he received the feud from his wife Eleonora Platamone.
