13 Pope John Paul II Statue in Old Town, Cartagena, Colombia

This bronze statue of Pope John Paul II commemorates the papal visit in 1986. The pontiff came to Colombia to mourn the loss of over 23,000 victims. They died from a mudslide caused by the eruption of the Nevada del Ruiz volcano in the town of Armero. During his weeklong visit, Santo Padre Juan Pablo II repeatedly condemned the country’s guerrillas who trade in cocaine.
