This derivation is very well understood due to the location and environment of the place. In the beginnings of the city ruled Arab rule. This ended, however, when the island of Mallorca was divided by King Jaume I. He gave the country two knights with a half each. Already since the 14th century the division of the city districts consists of the following two parts: amarata, Valella and Es Puig. In 1300 the city was founded by King Jaume II.
