Encinas Reales in Cordoba is a young town that was born as such in 1836, when it broke away from Lucena. Its origins date back to the seventeenth century and Roman remains found in Las Mersillas tell us about its ancient past. Thus, the houses began to be constructed in its present location by the early seventeenth century. The first inhabitants of Encinas Reales Lucena farmers who came to work the fields of the Dukes of Medinaceli so that the residents of the new village would not have to go Lucena to meet the Holy Mother Church. Works on the town must have been slow, because it was not completed until 1814, almost two centuries after the start.

The ancient oaks were places, hence the name, but the original was Encinas sparse, which suggests that these trees were widely spaced or sparse. The reason for this aspect so spread is due to the continuous logging of these nuclei of oaks during the wars of Christians against Muslims in the region of Granada. Over time the town achieved Royal status, which gives the town more rank and importance and which relates a legend about how Dona Isabella, going on a trip, rested in the shade of some large oaks that were there.
