Recently, Netflix presented The Two Popes, a great movie about the history of Pope Francisco and Pope Benedict XVI. Well, our company managed a program to visit the history of the Pope, and I`m sure, the most important Argentinian personality in history, and the history of the Jesuits. The program includes our SEP. The SEP is a Special Experience Program, a unique experience between the visitor and the local environment, it´s a meeting with another local person with the same interest, a teacher, a personality, etc. that enriches the journey because it allows the exchange of experience between tourists and local people.

 

SEP´s included in the program:

We usually include three SEP´s in these programs, but can be adjusted by the requirements of teachers or tour leaders. SEP´s included in the program are:

SEP 1: Meet a local priest who knows Francisco, to chat about the pope and his work and experiences
SEP 2: Meet local professor of Cordoba University for an open class about the history of Jesuits in the area
SEP 3: Meet aborigins in a local school. Volunteering activity

Take a look to our program below:
