Impressive but, it felt a little Disney. Lourdes is a very touristy town so expect to pay touristy prices

I had been at the Sanctuary several times as a young child and when I returned as an adult it was quite the better experience. Well organized with many young volunteers in uniform, as well as the grounds being more clean than I remember. I suggest to visit on low tourist season.

After the crowds had gone, late at night, the experience of sitting quietly at the grotto was amazing. The sound of the Gave de Pau behind you, the statue of Our Lady in the niche, and the opportunity to just contemplate...a very spiritual setting.

Large amount of people noise at the Grotto even though they do their best to ask people to stay quiet. Not as relaxing as Fatima I found.

Amazing experience of peace and tranquility when visiting the Grotto, especially at night. The only fault was lack of seating. They should consider that there are a lot of older people and sick people visiting the Grotto and taking part in the torchlight procession.

The majority of our 2 day visit to Lourdes was spent in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. We found that 2 days was perfect for the visit. There are various functions going on throughout the day, but we found the only daily English masses to be at 9:00 AM and also 6:15 PM on Saturday. I am not... More
