Cinta Costera: Panama's WYD headquarters in 2019

This is where most of the events of WYD in Panama 2019 will be held. It is called the Cinta Costera Uno.

All of the world's Episcopal Conferences were in agreement that the Cinta Costera would be the best option. 

VICTOR CHANG
Local Organizing Committee, WYD Panama 2019

“The big events, where the largest number of people are, are the main acts with the Holy Father. These are the events that will take place on the Cinta Costera.

They have the approval of the Vatican's Gendarmerie, whose specialists considered it suitable to guarantee Pope Francis' security. 

DOMINGO ESPITIA
Head of Planning - National Police (Panama)
“At the moment, we can assure that all security sectors are available to make World Youth Day a success in terms of administration, security and emergency matters.”

WYD will be held from January 22 to 27, 2019, and over 375,000 pilgrims are expected to attend, both national and international.
