Italian mountain to be named after John Paul II

.- A mountain in the Apennines of Italy has been renamed “Wojtyla Peak” in honor of Pope John Paul II. The mountain, which reaches an altitude of 1391 feet, did not have formal name, and therefore officials from the town of L’Aquila decided to name it after the beloved Pope.

Likewise, a path which runs from the parish of San Pietro della Jenca towards the peak will be called “John Paul II Way.”

The local mayor, Biagio Tempesta, said the name would be honor of the walks John Paul II took one time in the area.
