On November, 5 1982, Pope John Paul II visited Seville, a milestone in the history of the city. This volume, published by our Foundation and Argantonio, recalls the stay of the Supreme Pontiff in Seville, as well as the beatification of Sor Ángela de la Cruz. The book includes a chronicle by José María Javierre, texts on the creation of the altar for the mass held in Campo de la Feria and the building of the chapel in the Instituto de las Hermanas de la Cruz, and the memories of Monseñor Amigo Vallejo about the event.
