4. Papodromo - Maceió

Papodromo

While Papodromo is a popular place of interest and visited by tourists, this place is more popular for its history rather than its current infrastructure. Papodromo disappoints many as the government has failed to preserve the history that happened here. In a very dreadful condition, Papodromo is most often a spot for drug trafficking now. Local residents continue to demand that this place must be transformed into a recreation area. The reason behind this much concern for this place is related to the history behind it. Papodromo was specifically built to welcome Pope John Paul II on his second visit to Brazil. Regardless of the condition Papodromo is in, its historical significance demands that visiting here must be one of the things to do in Brazil. An altar was built here complete with armored glass, grids and, many banks to accommodate mass session that pope was expected to give. While this site is more or less completely destroyed now, with only drug traffickers and drug users frequenting it, Papodromo is still a worthy place to see. When so many faithful believers gathered in Papodromo–including the pope himself–it became a place of importance. What little is left of it, one of the things to do in Papodromo is to appreciate the stage and the glass (broken now) where the pope stood up and conducted mass once.
