In our popular POPE FRANCIS TOUR IN BUENOS AIRES, we lead you down the path taken by Jorge Bergoglio before he became ‘The Pope from the end of the world’; Pope Francis.
Accompanied by a professional guide, we will visit churches and tour schools the Pope went to, as well as learn about his beloved Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro soccer club.
We will visit his childhood home, places which influenced him and the Basílica San José de Flores: the church in which a 17-year-old Jorge Bergoglio devoted his life to God.
This tour is aimed at all audiences, of any age, who wants to know the history of this major figure.
10:00 am: we will meet at Tangol Office in San Telmo neighborhood to kick off this 3-hour historical tour. Our first stop is Pope Francis' childhood home in the Flores neighborhood, where he lived with his parents and siblings. We will then move on to visit his school, the Instituto Nuestra Señora de la Misericordia, and the Jesuit Universidad del Salvador along with its church.
The tour continues to the Basílica de San José de Flores, where a 17-year-old Pope Francis went to confess, received his "divine call" and began serving the Church. As he said: "(at that exact moment) I immersed myself in God's mercy". In this Church, Jorge Bergoglio decided to become a priest.
Next, we will continue following Jorge Bergoglio’s journey by seeing the Basílica de María Auxiliadora y San Carlos, where he was baptized. You’ll learn about the history of the place as well as get an unparalleled panoramic view of the San Lorenzo de Almagro soccer Club, which Pope Francis is a passionate fan of. We’ll visit the San Ignacio de Loyola Church in the Montserrat district, built by the Jesuits in 1675. It is in fact the oldest standing church in Buenos Aires and is also part of the historical-cultural complex ‘Manzanas de las Luces’.
Excellent Pope Francis Tour 29/06/2016Really interesting! Not only did we get to learn a lot of the Popes Francis early life, but we also got to know many different places in BA: it was really great going to non touristic places, such as the neighborhood where he was born and raised, his kindergarden and primary school, or the little soccer field where he used to play !
Dont miss this tour if you are in BA!!! Reviewed by Jack Great Pope Francis Tour!!! 29/06/2016Wow!!! You should definitely take this Pope Francis Tour if you want to understand the
background, his childhood and youth.
I would HIGHLY recommend this tour if you want to know where the "Pope of the People" got his inspiration. Reviewed by Juliet Beautiful experience! 22/06/2016I loved every minute of my tour.
My guide, Pablo, in addition to being warm, gracious, and kind, was extremely knowledgeable. I learned so much from him ... not only about Pope Francis, but also much of Argentina's history, culture, and politics. It was wonderful experiencing the life of the Pope, Argentina, and Buenos Aires ... through the eyes of someone who was born and raised here. Every minute of the tour was lively and interesting ...
We ended the tour at The Cathedral of Buenos Aires ... I ended up spending a few uplifting hours there, attending mass, and then was pleasantly treated to a beautiful concert.
Thank you so much, Pablo and Tangol, for this beautiful experience!Reviewed by Andy H
