  • We visited Lourdes from interest. To have seen it once. Also if not believers. It is catchingly to see how many people here come to pilgrimage in their full belief. We arrived around 11h30 and it was not yet super crowded. When we returned to the hotel around 16h it was already much busier.

  • i had a long driving to Lourdes. Upon arriving the place you will find out how the whole city revolves around the religious concept. There are hundred of stores selling some religious material. The sessions are hosted in pretty much all the known languages, so you will be good to go, just find the one that matches you. Lourdes is also a absolutely beautiful city.
  • Excellent place to do pilgrimage. Devotees from all over the world were atuned. Grotto gave me goosebumps. Only place where I participated in two occasions praying the rosary. Candle procession was divine. Mass at 9am in English at the Immaculate Chapel was celebrated by 4 priests. Met father James Burns who was so friendly. Hope to be back someday with the whole family.
