In 1569, the hamlet of Los Blaquez came under the jurisdiction of the parish of St. Anne in Los Prados.
In 1817, along with La Granjuela, Los Prados, Valsequillo and Esparragosa, it formed the village of Cinco Aldeas (Five Hamlets). This union lasted until 1842, when Los Blazquez became a village in its own right.
