Pope Francis in Rio
Project info

In the city for the World Youth Day in July 2013, Pope Francis was warmly welcomed by the cariocas in his first international trip.

Catholics from the entire country - specially the younger ones - came to Rio de Janeiro to be part of WYD and see the Pope. The city was crowded and had a good peaceful spirit. Copacabana beach had a huge stage where Pope prayed a couple of times for a big public.

Very friendly and smiling, he used the Popemobile several times to be near the people during the five days he spent in Rio.
