Meet your guide and the rest of your group in San Telmo, then board a minivan for the short ride to Buenos Aires' city center. Stop at Jorge Bergoglio's childhood home that he shared with his parents and siblings, then move on to his early educational institutions like the College of Our Lady of Mercy and the Jesuit Universidad del Salvador.
See the Basilica of San José de Flores, where the Pope took his sacraments, received his religious vocation and dedicated his life to God at just 17 years old.
Continuing this 3-hour tour, learn about the Pope's love of futbol (soccer) at the San Lorenzo de Almagro Athletic Club. Visit the San Ignacio de Loyola Church and continue on to the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral, the main Catholic church in Buenos Aires. Overlooking Plaza de Mayo, this 16th-century building was the site where the devout followers of Pope Francis waited to hear if he would succeed Pope Benedicto XVI.
