Hi,

What's the difference between these verbs?

Cruzo la calle./Atravieso la calle.
Cruzo el mar/Atravieso el mar.
Cruzo el prado/Atravieso el prado.

Thank you.

    In those sentences, I think they mean basically the same thing. But generally, "atravesar" means to go through something (all the way), like a bullet through a body, or an arrow through a target.
