In antiquity, the area was inhabited by the Greeks and Romans; it was known as Sportela and then as Roligera. In the 14th century, the village was a feudatory possession of the Rila Monastery and may have been mentioned in Tsar Ivan Shishman of Bulgaria's Rila Charter as Driska. Later on, it was mentioned as İrlie in Ottoman tax registers of 1576.
