Spanish term or phrase: REYES CATOLICOS
It was underneath the name on a check and up above the address. I don't know if this is an additional person or a place.

English translation:A place name, in this context!
Explanation:
*Los Reyes Católicos* is how the Spanish monarchs are referred to! On a check, placed below the person's name, this would be part of the address: hispanic countries, but especially Spain, tend to give names to places reflecting their present or historical political structure, just as we give names to places reflecting ours, including a lot of places which include "Presidents" in them. Since this is above the street address, I am assuming this is the name of either a building, a park, or a square.
