Many people remember the stunning views of the hillside town to which Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI retreated on February 28, 2013. Castel Gandolfo has been an official papal residence for five centuries. This summer is the second summer in the history of the town that the reigning pope has not spent the summer there.
Cindy Wooden of Catholic News Service spent a day exploring the town and meeting the locals. She discovered the pope's decision to stay at the Vatican and keep working is affecting more than just the Roman Curia.  Read her story to find out about the financial and social impact of new papal summer plans.
