The municipality is made of the town of Los Navalucillos and of the hamlets of Robledo del Buey, Los Alares, and Valdeazores.

Los Navaluccilos was founded between 1142 and 1209n, as reported on a document signed by Alfonso VIII.
The town is named for navas, "fertile plains", and lucillos, "Mozarab sarcophagi". The plural form ("los) recall that the town results from the unification in the 18th century of two villages, Navalucillos de Talavera and Navalucillos de Toledo, which were separated only by a street.
