Have a look on Lourdes own website as a lot of it will be closed due to the flooding last week.

Definitely pounds not accepted. Bring some Euro cash with you and use your debit or credit card to withdraw other cash as you need it.

which hotel are you staying in? Although much of the Sanctuaries are now open (or will be next week) some hotels near the river remain closed.

Hello,

I will be staying in Villa Mariale on Avenue du Paradis, fairly close to the river. do you know if it was damaged and if it continues to do business?

I suggest you email them and ask their status. I notice from another thread that you are not going until September. However a quick verify will give you the opportunity to replan if necessary.

I know Hotel Roissy and it should be fine. However, for your peace of mind, you may want to email the hotel.
