Amor – la palabra mas bella

Amor, love, has been voted the most beautiful word in Spain by over 3,000 voters, a clear winner in the Escuela de Escritores competition to find the most beautiful word in Spanish. Second place went to libertad (freedom), followed by paz (peace), vida (life), azahar (orange blossom), esperanza (hope), madre (mother), mamá (mum), amistad (friendship) and libélula (dragonfly).

The top 26 are listed on the Escuela website, but why not join us in the forums, where we’re putting together a list of our own.
