This word means "place where you can find a lake with hazardous floods of water".Some centuries after, the Muslims (trying to reach the Northern part of Spain) transformed the place, and renamed it as "Bericulos". Finally, the name was influenced in Peligros by the Spanish language.It is known that there were Roman settlements, and during the Muslim domination it was a farmstead from "La Vega". In 1431, it took place the battle of "La Higueruela" between Christians and Muslims. Here, the army of Granada lost more than 10,000 men.After the ejection of the Moors, Peligros' population suffered a decline to a hundred of inhabitants, and its development took place during the 18th century.PopulationWhen the Reconquest finished and the settlement of the owners was normalized at their respective places, of the 20 families who returned to Peligros, 16 were of Muslim origin, the other 4 were Christians. Between the last decade of the 15th century and 1578, the population did not change.
