Lospalos is a city in East Timor, 248 kilometres (154 mi) to the east of Dili, the national capital. Lospalos is the capital of the district of Lautém and the subdistrict of Lospalos.
Internationally, the city is incorrectly called Los Palos, suggesting that its name is of Spanish origin. In fact, it is derived from Lohoasupala, its name in Fataluku, the local Papuan language, although nowadays Fataluku speakers use the name Lospala. The correct name in English, as well as Tetum and Portuguese, the official languages of East Timor, is Lospalos.
