What name would you give to the merger of Don Benito and Villanueva de la Serena?

‘Concordia del Guadiana’ or Las Mestas de Guadiana’. One of them will be the name of the new city of Extremadura, the third in the community in number of inhabitants, after the merger of Don Benito and Villanueva de la Serena.

Experts have chosen the term ‘Concordia’ for the “project of hope and future” that both towns begin with their merger. According to Carmona, in Spain there is no locality with this name and there are only 14 in the world. The name would be concordense.

For its part, ‘Las Mestas’ refers to the historical past of the two cities and highlights the historical importance of both municipalities at different times in history. The demonym of the neighbors would be mestenses.
