The town was occupied by the Moors in 713 and became part of the Ummayad kingdom under the Arabic name of Shilb. In the 10th century, it was one of the most important towns of western Al-Andalus. Silves became an independent taifa in 1027. The town went back and forth between Moorish and Christian hands until it was finally conquered by the Christian knights of the Order of Santiago in 1242.
