Papal visit to Colombia

Bogota, Colombia
September 5th-11th, 2017

Pope Francis will travel to Colombia in mid-September and visit the cities of Bogota, Villavicencio, Medellin and Cartagena.  The visit comes amid a new peace deal between the Colombian government and FARC rebels after 52 years of war.  It is unusual for the Pope to visit only one country on overseas travel, something church officials say points to the importance Pope Francis places on this visit.
