    The third crater !

    by Tetreus Written Nov 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The third crater, we used to live here in a residence called ' miragolf '.
    We still have a little apartment there, now used for renting to other people.

    The third crater is also a big golf complex ( exclusive ) with some little lakes inside.

    Fondest memory: Look over the crater..........do you see the the pope's summerpalace ?

    The pope's palace

    Favorite thing: The pope is staying the month of august in Castel Gandolfo.

    When he's feeling well, he is doing the mess on sundaymorning.
    The swiss guardians are opening the gate and about 100 people can enter inside the palace to hear the pope speaking.

    It's a very nice experience, because at that moment your are very close to the pope and surrounded by all very warm people who only want peace in the world.

    See the Pope

    Audience at Papal Palace

    Favorite thing: While the Pope is in residence (generally late July through August), when possible, he holds the equivalent of a "general" audience. In Rome, the general audience is held on Sundays near noon, when the Pope speaks from his apartment windows to the crowds in St. Peter's Square. Here in Castel Gandolfo, the space and the feeling are considerably more intimate.

    If you are planning on visiting Rome in late July or August and might want to take a side trip to Castel Gandolfo, contact your local parish priest before you leave and ask about how to get tickets to the audiences in Castel Gandolfo.
