Argentina

Argentina expecting surge in tourists following announcement of new Pope

Argentina is preparing for an influx of tourists that are expected to arrive following the inauguration of the new Pope Francis. The announcement of the new Argentinean Pontiff is set to bring tourists from all over the world to Argentina, to follow in the footsteps of the new Pope

Tour operators around the world are expecting to see a huge increase in interest in the country following the announcement of the new Pope. Areas such as Flores, Pope Francis’ birthplace, are predicted to become popular places of interest and tourists are expected to flock to Buenos Aires in the coming months.

"As we have seen with Pope John Paul II and his native Poland, a popular and beloved Pope will drive people of faith to want to follow in their footsteps," said Mike Schields, managing director or groups and emerging markets for Globus. "Visiting a pope's birthplace, notable towns and cities in which he lived and has been memorialized, and the Churches and communities in which he has served the Catholic faith, are all strong attractions for pilgrims.

"Over time, and as Francis becomes more well-known, we anticipate the same dynamic will happen with Argentina. In South America in general, a large and growing Catholic population will attract many to the fascinating culture and history the region has to offer,” he added.

The San Lorenzo football team is also expected to receive some unexpected interest following the inauguration of the new Pope. Pope Francis is reportedly a huge fan of the Buenos Aires-based football team, apparently never missing a match, and in 2008 he even offered to conduct a special Mass service from the team’s 100 year anniversary.
