Sanctuaires Notre-Dame de Lourdes reviews
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.
