Alcaucín is a name of Arabic origin, derived from al-qawsayn (القوسن) meaning "The Arcs." Some authors hypothesize that the name was due to the existence of an aqueduct and others to the abundance of yew trees, whose wood is used for making hunting bows, which have the form of an arc.

The term city of the municipality is from the areas of Málaga that can testify as the first to be inhabited by man, as documented in the "Boquete de Zafarraya" excavations that state that in 1983 human remains appeared including a jaw, which belonged to a Neanderthal man. During the period of Phoenician colonization, they laid the foundations of the fortress of Zalía, but it was the Arabs who built the present castle in 1485 until it was conquered by the Catholic Monarchs.
