    Hello Suenick,

    I seem to remember this being asked before and no one could come up with a translation. It seems to be a made up name, perhaps personal to the builders. (?)

    La Ci˝uela is the name of an existing finca/hacienda in the south of Torrevieja. The entrance and a sign with its name you can see on the right hand, if you drive south the N332 - at the beginning of the daily traffic jam. This hacienda must be very old: I found it on a map from the 19th century.

    Ci˝uelica is the diminutive of La Ci˝uela, like poco and poquito. Something like "little, cute Ci˝uela". The meaning of the word? I don┤t know. Maybe, that in former times the name was different, like Cegniola or something like this.

    I did wonder about that, as I have passed by there many times. However, as the name on the gate is, I believe, La Cenuela rather than La Cinuela, I did not put this forward.
    As it is in the right area though, and so similar, maybe this is the answer.
    It is certainly the best solution that has been proposed thus far.

    Why doesn┤t someone ask the builder who named it?

    That simply means nothing. Aparently just a name that the developer has given to it.

    Hi

    If it means nothing and is a made up name.... how are we pronouncing it.
    Would it be Chinweleecka. With the w being soft? Or if it's made up does it matter?

    Beastess said why don't you ask the builder - well, I did. All I could get out of him was that it had something to do with a waterwheel somewhere up country (his family home) and he wouldn't be drawn (sorry about the pun) any further.
    The question was asked by a Spanish lady so the explanation was not lost in translation.
    I would dearly love to know what it really means.
    Just had an idea. I get on well with one of the girls in the builder's office. I'll send her an email and report back
