The remains found at the borders of Manzanilla, where marble columns are scattered throughout the locality, are a clear testimony of the Roman times. During the Arab domination Manzanilla belonged to the Kingdom of Niebla, and was called Maxalia.
After the Reconquista Manzanilla belonged, along with other populations, to the Lordship of Seville. Today, along with other villages, it makes up part of the County of Huelva. The geographical, orographic, and economic circumstances justify this fact. Manzanilla wine was exported to England and the Netherlands in the fifteenth century, although there is evidence of previous wine trade in Roman times.
