Erasmo Escala, Old “Galán de la Burra” (prince of the donkey) street.

On its over one kilometer extension, Erasmo Escala Street goes across  Brasil and Yungay Neighborhoods , harboring mansions of motley architecture that join services, shops and institutions that unwrap inside a peaceful neighborhood life.

it was named Erasmo Escala in honor to the distinguished Military and deputy of Santiago, dead in 1884, but in one of its corners we can find a curious plaque that reminds its old name “Del Galán de la Burra” (prince of the donkey), originated with a particular and funny story of an inlove  young man.

At the end of XIX century, the Municipality of Santiago agreed to give the present name, a more serious denomination, but not so rich about legends and originality.
