15th century plague hospital to be covered by Apple store

Some residents of Madrid are less than thrilled that a new Apple store will be opening atop the ruins of a 15th century plague hospital. The 20,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open its doors in December 2013, covering the ruins of the medieval building.

Demolished in 1854, the San Andres Hospital had 60 beds and was used to treat victims of the plague. City officials have asked Apple executives in incorporate an outline of the ruins into the basement floor of the building.
