Pope Francis Tour
  • English
  • 3 hours

Do you want to follow the path taken by Jorge Bergoglio before he became the “Pope from the end of the World”? Discover what the early life of Pope Francisco was like in Buenos Aires with this sightseeing tour.

Itinerary

The journey through the life of Jorge Bergoglio starts at 10 am at his birthplace in the renowned Flores neighborhood. This is where Jorge spent his formative years with his parents and four siblings.

We will tour the buildings which shaped his education and where he received the first sacraments which awoke his religious calling. We visit the places that he frequented in his youth and, at San Lorenzo de Almagro Football Club, we will learn about how his passion for football started.

We will stop at the Church of San Francisco de Asis, where Bergoglio discovered the Franciscan Order from which his papal name is taken. We also visit the San José de Flores church, where at only 17 years old, he decided to dedicate his life to God.

Our last stop is the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral, where thousands of Argentines convened to await the results of the conclave in which Bergoglio was elected successor to PopeBenedict XVI.

The tour ends around 1 pm in Plaza de Mayo.
