A remarkable experience.

As a non catholic I wasn't sure what to expect but the whole experience was uplifting and rewarding. The architecture, the location and the people have to be seen to be believed.

We are not pilgrims, but you cannot help to become one when you walk to such a spiritual place. Whole life approach is changing, you pay attention to what is important in your life and you look at your family in different way. Extremely uplifting, full of hope, sorrow and contemplation. It is a must see and experience place. Our... More

This was an incredibly beautiful area with some amazing buildings. Our stay here was only two days but experiencing the parade of hundreds to the blessing each evening was simply amazing to witness. The faith and belief people have was wonderful to see.

Peace and quiet not always possible. The sanctuaries can be noisy at times, with crowds, especially when people who do not respect the religious aspect of the area.

We spent two days here,attending mass each day at the Grotto where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette Soubirous,a poor peasant girl over a hundred years ago.This is an amazing spiritual experience, bringing together pilgrims from all over the world in prayer and hope,both in sickness and in health. We also attended the candlelit procession in the evening in the Esplanade,... More

It's so serene and beautiful. Go early morning if you want to skip the crowd and have bath in the holy pond. I took my parents there. We took budget carrier from Paris. I will not recommend train journey

I came here for a personal retreat and it was amazing. From the Marian processions to the beautiful town. This place is blessed by God through the Virgin Mary.

The basilica in Lourdes is one of extra ordinary energy with the sanctity which is arguably the most divine around the world. Merely standing outside will give you a special feeling.
