Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Calle de Las Setas (The Mushroom Street) with additional information or photos.

In 2013, part of Alicantes’s San Francisco Street was transformed into a whimsical, fantasy wonderland of yellow brick roads, toadstool houses, and towering mushrooms.

The purpose of this initiative was to rejuvenate the street and help the businesses in the area during a state of economic decline. The mushroom statues are the work of artist Sergio Martinez, and cost the City of Alicante around €66,000.
