Pope in Spain: What's happening

November 5, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI is heading to Spain tomorrow. Salt + Light has all of the events of his visit LIVE on our television channel and streaming online.
It will be a busy two days for the Holy Father...
On Saturday November 6th,
The Pope is visiting the city of Santiago de Compostela, the final destination for one of the oldest Christian pilgrimages - El Camino de Santiago (or the Way of St. James for us Anglophones).
On Sunday November 7th,
The Pope is in Barcelona for the consecration of the Sagrada Familia Church, a stunning piece of architecture designed by Catalan artist Antoni Gaudi. Gaudi died in a tragic accident before finishing the Church. It has since been under construction for the better part of the 20th century. The Pope will also pay a visit to Nen Déu Social Welfare Centre before heading back to the Vatican.
