'Viatge a l'Infant', an experiential tourist and cultural route through the universe of 'The Little Prince'

The route runs along the Jonquet Coastal Path, which links the Arenal and Torn beaches and has been awarded the Blue Flag.

Sit on the beach, close your eyes and pay attention to what you hear around you: the sound of the waves, the gentle breeze on your face, the birds singing... and look for an element around you that represents what makes you special.

This is one of the seven dynamics proposed by 'Viatge a l'Infant', an experiential tourist and cultural route promoted by the City Council's Department of Tourism and inspired by the work of The Little Prince, by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

And why Saint-Exupéry and The Little Prince? Well, because, according to documents, the author of this literary classic was forced to make an emergency landing in the town during a trip in which he was piloting the plane that was flying between Marseilles and Algiers. For this reason, in 1932, Exupéry spent two days in L'Hospitalet de l'Infant.

The result of all this is 'Viatge a l'Infant', a walking route through L'Hospitalet de l'Infant, which runs along the Jonquet Coastal Path, which links the Arenal and Torn beaches and which has been awarded the Blue Path flag. An innovative route that offers an immersive, transformative and memorable experience all year round.

Along the route along the Jonquet Coastal Path, you can take part in seven dynamics that work on personal wellbeing and highlight values such as love, friendship, innocence, gratitude, tolerance, etc. Values that revolve around the story of The Little Prince. Those who follow the route will therefore be able to connect with themselves and with the people who accompany them and take a journey full of personal challenges that will make them think, get excited and transform themselves.

Those who want to take part in these activities and live this experience will have to go to the Tourist Office to pick up the 'Viatge a l'Infant passport'. This passport contains information about each of the challenges: each dynamic is accompanied by instructions and a story so that participants understand what to do at each point along the route and includes different illustrations that are intended to evoke the environment in which each challenge is carried out.

After overcoming each challenge, at each point along the route (marked with a wooden post), participants can stamp their passport with the sign they will find there by placing the page against the stamp-symbol and scratching it with a pencil. Once they have completed all the proposed activities and have all the stamps in the passport proving that they have completed them, they can go to the Tourist Office to receive a gift, consisting of merchandising products from L'Hospitalet de l'Infant i la Vall de Llors Tourism.

The passport will be available in different languages (Catalan, Spanish, French and English) and contains a postcard so that the participants, after having made this Viatge a l'Infant, which like Saint-Exupéry's book claims childhood as a territory to recover what is essential, can send it to their loved ones and share this experience.
