Conil has been settled to take advantage of the rich
tune fishing grounds along this area of the coast.
With the Romans the town became an important port through
which the Via Herculea coastal route connecting Malaga
and Cadiz passed.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Conil was sucessively
invaded by Vandals, Byzantines and Visigoths followed
by the Muslims who set their sights on this beautiful
land in 711 and incorporates it into the territorial
division of Sidonia.
This little town would later become part of the feudal
domains of the Dukedom of Medina-Sidonia until the feudal
estate was abolished.
