Antique History 3500 BC - 900 AD
The first remains of human occupation in Lloseta, the same as in many other municipalities of the island, are from the Pre-Talaiotic and Talaioic period. Thanks to the campaigns of excavation which took place during the 1960 decade, today we are able to talk with more precision about our first ancestors. In Lloseta there are five beds, four of which are burial caves and a fortified enclosure. The information about the Roman Age of Lloseta is almost non-existent. As well as the possible etymological origin of the place name, defended by some historians, only some casual findings have left signs of the Roman presence in this area. If the historical references now are limited of the Roman Age, then we must point out their inexistence, or at least the present ignorance that we have, about the V to the X centuries. We know nothing about the passage of the Vandals and Byzantines, confirming the expression the 'dark years' so often attributed to the history of Mallorca.
The Middle Ages (IV - XV)
Not much more encouraging is the Muslim presence which lasted almost two centuries on our island .We only know is that Lloseta was in the administrative district of Canarossa (which also included the municipalities of Binissalem, Sencelles, Costitx, Alaró, Santa Eugenia, Consell and Santa Maria) and with the present survival of some place names that remind us of the presence of this settlement, such as, Morull ot the Cueva des Moros (cave of the Moors).
From the Renaissance to the Age of Enlightenment (XVI - XVIII)
From the social-economical point of view, the XVI century inaugurated the Modern Age of the cadastres, thanks to which we know the social economic reality of the Mallorcan villages. Of the cadastre of the year 1578, we know that in Lloseta and Aiamans, there were three 'possessions' (estates), Lloseta, Son Pelai and sEstorell, a stable, property of Lluís Togores and eighty properties of homes and lands.
The Modern Age (XIX XX)
The last decades of the XX century have seen a deep transformation in the municipality. In the demographic area, immigration has resulted in a constant growth of the population, which at present surpasses the number of 4.500 inhabitants. This demographic increase has provoked a consequent process of urbanization, which in the last twenty years has completely change the appearance of the old lands of Son Togores, ses Flexes, etc. Blocks of flats have appeared where there used to be almond and fig trees and this is what has given the town the aspect of a modern municipality that it has at present.
Half of the territory of Lloseta is on flat land and the other half is situated in the Tramuntana, Mountain Range.
