Romana Street is an east-west street in downtown Pensacola. Its western terminus is at South Pace Boulevard; from there it travels easterly uninterrupted to its eastern terminus at Bayfront Parkway on Pensacola Bay.

Romana Street is named for Pedro Caro, the 3rd Marquis of la Romana, a hero of the Spanish Peninsular War.

In British Pensacola, what is now Romana Street was called Princess Street, for the Princess Royal.[1] The street is present on the 1812 Pintado plan, where it is labelled Calle de Romana.
