At our high school, we split our middle and high school students into three separate groups, and each headed off to a different part of Spain. I chaperoned the middle school field trip to Hospitalet de l'Infant along the Costa Dorada, a beach resort town 140km south of Barcelona. As the name translates to Baby Hospital, an eerie name for a town, I researched its origin and learned that in 1346, Peter IV ("infant Pere") and his mother Blanca d'Anjou instituted an old hospital here which bore this name. It was built to shelter wayfarers and pilgrims.
We saw no hospital. Only a deserted beach resort town that was probably thronged with people all summer long.
