Ea – The shortest place name in the world

February 10th, 2010 | by nick |

The town of Ea, in Vizcaya, the Basque Country, holds the honour of being the shortest place name in Spain and one of the equal shortest in the world. The town takes its name from the river which runs through it. Ea is attractively sited on the edge of an estuary which cuts through the cliffs of the Bay of Biscay. There is a small beach which the local shellfishers harvest each low tide.
