  • This was an awesome place. Beautiful scenery in the mountains. People are so friendly. Even when there are thousands of pilgrims it is very peaceful.

  • The Sanctuary is very well managed and preserved. The information center can provide info in events in different languages. The town is a cozy little town to walk around and enjoy.

  • I was blessed to be able to visit during my last pilgrimage in France. There is a daily Marian procession in the evening that's been happening for hundreds of years. There are daily confessions in multiple languages in a building across the water so that's always available. Pre-covid there is also an opportunity to be dunked in the water from the fountain but now it's just water poured from a jug that you wash yourself with. It is definitely worth a visit for anyone in south west France, especially if you're Catholic.
  • Ave Maria This is the most beautiful place and ever memorable experience I cherish from the visit to this pilgrim place. Beautiful and Blessed moments. Experiences of the Lord's interventions in my life through the intercession of Mary Mother of Jesus.
