Much evidence has been found of ancient life in this small town, but it wasn't until the Middle Ages that life has actually been documented in this particular district of Madrid.

After the Reconquista, Hoyo de Manzanares was quickly repopulated by Moriscos, Philistines, Segovians and of course Madrilenos. This mixed population remained stable until 1609-1614 when the Spanish government forced Moriscos to leave the Kingdom of Spain after the marriage of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon. The town then lost most of its population, which nonetheless remained stable for the following years.
