L'Hospitalet D'infanta charming historic town
Richard Dixon, London
L'hospitalet is a small Spanish town and resort. The second week-end in September it hosts a medieval weekend centrered on the 15th Century Hospitalet in the town. The town centre is only 2 blocks from the sea. A great place for a quiet holiday.
The best thing about my stay was ...
Short flight from the UK and much to explore south of Reus
