Hospital on it called Hospital of Basurto.
I have not find anithing about this surname with L., but if your ancestors
came from South America can be probably a variation of the Surname Basurto,
in some zones of South America they used to change the R in to L. I have
loked up in a complete spanish atlas and there isn't any place called
Basulto, so I think is not a spanish surname, but a basque one.
