.- During his visit to Barcelona in November, Pope Benedict XVI will take a 30 minute motorcade ride from the archbishop's residence to the Church of the Holy Family along the streets of the Spanish city.

According to the Spanish daily La Razon, the Holy Father will arrive at the Barcelona airport on the afternoon of November 6 and will be met by an entourage of 10 people.

The group will then accompany him to the archbishop’s residence.

The next day, the Pope will be accompanied by Cardinal Lluis Martinez Sistach on a motorcade ride through downtown Barcelona to the “Sagrada Familia” or Church of the Holy Family, where he will celebrate the Mass with 1,100 concelebrants, including cardinals, archbishops, bishops, abbots and priests.

That afternoon, Benedict XVI will visit a home for children with disabilities. The king and queen of Spain will then meet the Holy Father at the airport for the departure ceremony.
