That's not a backslash, this / is a backslash.

C/ is shorthand for Calle (de), translated as "street". You will find many Spanish addresses written with abbreviations like this. Also, the street number comes last. Guidebooks should have a table of these abbreviations -- there are many of them.

Hi Harvey,<BR>Eric and Daniel are right. C/ is the short form for Calle (Street)so you'll see it in every guide or letter before the name of the street. The same thing goes with: Pza.= Plaza (Square) or Avd.=Avenida (Avenue)
