Lourdes Private Spiritual walking tour

21 reviews
Nestled in the Pyrenees, Lourdes has been a major pilgrimage site for Catholics for over a hundred years. It was here that Bernadette Soubirous is thought to have witnessed numerous apparitions of the Virgin Mary. On this private tour, choose from morning or afternoon departure times, and meet your guide in the city center. You’ll visit Soubirous’ childhood home, will learn about her life and later canonization, and will have time to discover the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Chateau Fort is the main castle located. in the well known city in the South of France called Lourdes. The castle is a very beautiful building, which you can see from some parts of the town. If you enter, you can visit some rooms and learn about the history of the castle, see very nice views of the town and the important churches and walk in free air, where you can see some models of buildings. Very nice, for me, the best visit in the city. Pitifully, we visit it in a rainy day. Also, my 4 years old daughter enjoyed a lot seeing the rooms, where the princess lived.. :-)

Lourdes is in my top most beautiful towns in the world. The mountains surrounding the town combined with gorgeous cliffs a gorgeous crystal green river running through it and the phenomenal architecture is the reason to come I was blown away. I did not know it would be so beautiful1 It is in my top five most beautiful small towns in the world.

Beautiful fort above the town, worth the walk up the hill (or you can take the lift system). Gives a great impression of times gone by in the area, as well as wonderful views around the area. It was free to enter on the Sunday we visited.
