locura noun: madness, insanity

  • Locura is used in a couple of very idiomatic phrases. First, es una locura, it’s crazy, it’s mad:
    Huyen de la hambruna y la locura colectiva que asola sus países. They’re fleeing the famine and collective madness devastating their countries.
    Es una locura pero tenía que venir. I know it’s crazy, but I had to come.
  • And then in the phrase hacer locuras:
    Huyen de la hambruna y la locura colectiva que asola sus países. They’re fleeing the famine and collective madness devastating their countries.
    Es una locura pero tenía que venir. I know it’s crazy, but I had to come.
    No hagas locuras. Don’t do anything crazy or stupid.
