Since the 13th century the village was the head of the Taha de Poqueira, which included the villages of Capileira, Pampaneira, Bubión and the now defunct village of Alguástar. And it was the first village in the Alpujarra to have a Town Hall.
After the Christian Reconquest of Granada in 1492, the population was gradually put under pressure. This led to the Moorish Rebellion in 1568. Because a rich landowner in the area, Abén Humeya, took up arms against Philip II. Causing a general revolt on Christmas Eve among the Moors.
But internal dissensions among the Moors themselves, who, in 1569, killed Abén Humeya. It caused that the step-brother of Felipe II, Don Juan of Austria finished soon with the uprising.
Finally in 1609 the Christian kings expelled from Spain all the Moors and Muslims. Like the rest of the Alpujarra, Bubión was repopulated with settlers and peasants from Galicia, León, Murcia and Castile.
