This means rooftop and it's a crucial word to know as we get into the warmer weather


Spain has very good rooftops where you can sip on a drink in the sun and appreciate some great views.

Here are some examples of how to use it:


  • Los obreros están en la azotea arreglando el tejado.

         The builders are fixing the rooftop.


  • Han abierto un nuevo bar de copas en la azotea de un edificio.

        They've opened a new rooftop bar.
