That Extinct Convent
The name of this station, just as in the case of Trinitat Vella, originates in an old and now extinct convent which burnt down during the Spanish War of Independence and which was located where the present-day Church of Sant Jaume stands. It is the Trinitat road junction where, in about 1445, the only jurisdictional gallows was erected beyond the city walls, which added to the other four within the walls. In order to reach the old quarter to the gallows, one had to cover a great distance. For this reason, in Catalonia they still allude to the fifth gallows to describe something that is very far away.
