An Arab hamlet rich in water and mills, it is mentioned by Edrisi with the name "At Tarbi'ah" (the square one). From the 14th century it had a tunny fishery. The modern town was founded in 1635 by Prince Ottavio Lanza, Duke of Camastra.
The castle is of medieval origin. The Porta Palermo dates from a few years before the town's 17th century foundation.
