In the Middle Ages, San Ponso followed the destiny of many small towns and was hit by war, poverty and plague. In the sixteenth and seventeenth century it was included in the jurisdiction of Salassa, under the Counts of Valperga; it regained its autonomy as a municipality in 1693, then lost it in 1929, when it was aggregated to Salassa again, until 1947 when it was reinstated as a municipality.
