Rota's origins go back to the Phoenicians, and there also indications of Roman and Arab settlements.

Between the 17th and 18th centuries, the town fell victim to sacking by English and Dutch armies and a lot of the towns monuments were destroyed.

Those which remain are the Castillo de Luna (18th century), the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Expectación (16th century) and the Baroque churches of la Caridad and San Roque.
