Calle Real

— El Camino Real —

Originating during Mexico's Spanish period, "Royal Road" connected Spain's southern and northern territories. The route linked Mexico City, Guadalajara, Mazatlan, and Culiacan, Magdalena to Spain's northern outposts. Eventually, Calle Real extended to Yuma, San Diego and San Francisco, remaining the primary route linking Mexico and the United States. In 1872, the street name was changed to Main Avenue.
