It was wonderful to witness the devotion displayed by the people. And the night procession was particularly touching! The wait to get into the baths was too long, it could be better organised.

Very moving and surreal place. Well worth a visit. Beautiful place. Remember to cover shoulders and no shorts if you want to go right up to the shrine of Our Lady. Tacky tourist shops line the streets directly outside but the actual place is fascinating whether you are a believer or not.

You have to see it to believe it. It does not matter what your religion is. The 9pm candle walk we done was breath taking. there must have been 20,000 in it

If you do not believe in anything...you will after you visit Lourdes. It is a spiritual journey and event. From the amazing healing power of the waters, to the once in a lifetime night candle vigil...truly an experience that you must see and experience. The most amazing place on earth...go

We went to visit at about 5.30pm which was a perfect time as hardly anyone was there. We wandered around for a couple of hours before the crowds arrived. A peaceful and very humbling experience.

Our group of 14 went on a pilgrimage to visit the Sanctuaries of Lourdes to have an experience of our Lady's blessings and love for the world. Please have sufficient time to visit all the various basilicas and to try out the Bath......it would be an experience of a life time even though the waiting time for your turn can... More

Going to Lourdes is an experience but visiting the Sanctuary is something amazing. It is full of people just praying and seeing loads of young people helping the elderly is something amazing.

The commercialism in the town is a huge rip off ...snack at a local establishment and bill was 20 Euros but would not take VISA charge because too small ...prices are very inflated especially at the church where they are selling candle ...WOW ...somebody is getting rich ...also there were no explanations in any language but French...amazing number of volunteers...

There is no hassle at all at Lourdes, as Hotels have reasonable rates according to your budget and everything is near at hand at walking distance. Hotels are great and locals so warm and hospitable.Lourdes is beautiful and clean and you can go on and on about the beauty of Lourdes the Jewel of Southern France.
