Follow in the footsteps of Jorge Bergoglio as he transformed from a kid who loved football into the Archbishop of Buenos Aires and finally Pope Francis. Visit the pope's childhood home, his first school, and the Basílica de San José de Flores.

After meeting your guide in downtown Bueno Aires, head to the Flores district and Pope Francis' childhood home, where he lived with his parents and 4 brothers during his early life. Visit where the pontiff was educated. Then, stop at the Basílica de San José de Flores, where Pope Francis used to worship when he was young and also where, at 17 years old, he went to confession and received his divine call.

Continue in the pope's path at Basílica de María Auxiliadora y San Carlos. Nearby, get to know his personal side with a panoramic view of the San Lorenzo de Almagro football club, Pope Francis' beloved home team. Your next location is San Ignacio de Loyola Church, which was constructed by the Jesuits in 1675 and is known as the oldest preserved church in Buenos Aires.

End your enlightening journey at the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral. Here, Jorge Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires and future pope, gave many important masses. This is also where devout followers of Pope Francis anxiously waited to find out if he would succeed Pope Benedict XVI. After hearing all about the locations that influenced the wildly popular pope, your tour ends in the beautiful Plaza de Mayo.
