Needed a place to recharge my energy, I stayed here for several hours. It's a lovely modern chapel where silence is the rule. Bench seating.

Apart from the obvious, the divine grace and presence of Virgin Mary the most surprising yet inspiring are the volunteers in Lourdes. What amazing people. Always smiling, always willing to help. Wow, awesome. I plan to visit Lourdes once every year.

The sanctuary is a unique place to visit. The shops outside are a distraction there are so many of them. Aways bring rainwear because inevitably it will rain.
