These are the most curious street names in Spain

From ‘I’m missing a screw’ street to ‘Super Mario Bros’, the street hides surprising names.

Huerta del Rey, the town with the strangest names in the world.

Drawing a map with the most curious names of the streets of a country is an almost impossible task, but some of those that adorn the roads, avenues or promenades of Spain have arrived far beyond the town or the city that chose them. In the end, how many times have we exclaimed ‘who named this street’?

These are some of the most famous:

One of the most surprising names on the Spanish street is found in Arroyo de la Encomienda, in a shopping center in this neighboring town of Valladolid. The idea came from the Ikea store located at that address. The firm proposed a vote on Facebook with two other options: ‘Like at home, nothing’ and ‘Hug Street on the sofa’, which were defeated.

Naming the streets of the urbanizations that have proliferated in much of Spain in recent decades did not have to be easy, and many times simple, but also daring, solutions were used. In Rivas-Vaciamadrid, one of those towns near Madrid that experienced a real real estate boom, an entire neighborhood was dedicated to legendary names in Spanish comics. And, among them, one of the streets was named ‘Mortadelo y Filemón’. In the area, you can walk through the streets ‘Pepe Gotera and Otilio’, ‘Rompetechos’, ‘El Buttons Sacarino’, ‘Rue del Percebe’.

‘Super Mario Bros’ Street (Zaragoza)

‘Salsi cans’ street (Pamplona, ​​Navarra)

To many people, the name Mengue may not mean anything, so it should be remembered that it is one of the nicknames with which the man is colloquially referred to. Devil. And this, in itself, is what makes the name of this avenue in Zamora, with views closer to some idea of ​​paradise, another of the rarest in Spain. Of course, in the city itself it has to compete with others like Hugger, Tailcutter or Burro Killer.

‘Desengaño’ Street (Madrid)

Although there is no orchard in sight, the Madrid neighborhood of Los Angeles has another of the most curious street names in Spain: ‘The Joy of the Orchard’. In reality, it refers to a zarzuela. It is no exception in the neighborhood, where you can also find streets like ‘The Song of Oblivion’ or ‘Gigantes y Cabezudos’.

Vejer de la Frontera (Cádiz), ‘Poca sangre’ does exist. It is not easy to find information about the origin of this name, unless it refers to the feeling of needing a transfusion that we can experience when climbing the slope to which it gives its name.
