This week The Local takes a look at Spain's most off-putting town and village names. Fancy a trip to Dead Women's Well anyone?


Spain has its fair share of weird place names, from the attention-grabbing Escucha (Listen) in Aragon, to the ominous-sounding Consuegra (With-mother-in-law) near Toledo.

But dig deeper and you’ll find a rather more sinister selection of town and village names.

From skulls to blisters, The Local has put together a list of the most intriguingly disgusting place names in Spain.
