Many people dream of traveling to the Eternal City in hopes of catching only a glimpse of the pope.

In order to take advantage of the last weeks of summer, these four pilgrims from Granada, Spain, left their families at home, packed up and came to Rome to fulfill their dreams.

Mª GRACIA
Pilgrim
"It was emotional. The pope addressed all attendees in different languages and I think all of us Christians are in love with him and the world as a whole. That's why he has the respect and love of everyone, due to his humanity and how merciful he is."

Fan in hand, the four Andalusian pilgrims stood under the sun, while enduring the strong heat in St. Peter's Square to hear the pope's words.

"It was my dream to come here and... I loved it. It was a bit hot here, but this is not important.”

"I saw only a little, but it's been such a big illusion to be here. It's been so hot during our stay!”

As they still have a few days left of their trip in Rome, they want to visit the city and try as many restaurants as possible. It is never too late to fulfill a dream, especially if you have such young spirits like they do.
