galapagar, (noun, m) – sitio donde abundan los galápagos (a place abounding in tortoises).
I heard of this word today and it particularly appealed to me for its very specific meaning. It seems to be rare and doesn’t appear in any of my Spanish dictionaries, though it does appear in the Diccionario de la Lengua Española.
Related words include:
- galápago – tortoise; mouldboard; ingot, pig; light saddle; sidesaddle
- galapagueño – (from) the Galapagos (Islands)
- galapagueña – native of the Galapagos (Islands)
