Lloseta is a relatively small municipality, lying half way between Binissalem & Inca, in the region known as Raiguer in Mallorca. This is rich, flat, agricultural land in the shadows of the Tramuntana mountain range, famous for its vineyards & almond groves.
Based on the land registry of 1578, Lloseta comprised three grand estates & eighty properties. At the end of the 17th century there were 300 inhabitants, compared with 5,700 today.
Lloseta town itself is a peaceful, charming place with small squares & cobblestone lanes. There are two local festivals. The festival of la Mare de Déu de Lloseta, the patron saint of the municipality, is held on 8 September. The pilgrimage of el Coco takes place on the first Wednesday after Easter. On both occasions there are cultural activities, parades, food stalls & music, attracting locals from surrounding villages to celebrate.
Life centres around the parish church, built in 1862. A traditional market is held on Saturdays in the Placa d’Espanya, where you can find every kind of fresh produce, vegetables, olives & handicrafts. There are shops for your daily needs as well as a good selection of restaurants.
Lloseta is only 20 minutes’ drive from Palma city but you can enjoy every kind of country pursuit - hiking, climbing, horse riding or cycling in its glorious countryside.
