The history of San Fulgencio began in the 18th century, when the bishop of Cartagena (Luis de Belluga y Moncada) ordered a project to recover some of the marshy lands close to the Segura river, and turn them into fertile agricultural areas suitable for growing crops.

The village was officially founded in 1729 and given the status of "real villa" by Felipe V, its population was made up of peoples from along the Segura valley and by 1794 had reached 1,215.

San Fulgencio has relied mostly on agriculture since these early times although is now greatly dependent on tourism and property development, as are many of the villages along this part of the coast. Among places worth visiting in San Fulgencio are the 18th century parochial church and the Archaeological Museum.
