Quite a hike nevertheless it was worth it due to the stunning views. Make sure to wear comfy shoes. Ticket is at 7 euros. Follow the guided path chronologically. Garden was marvelous! Recommended to sit down for a while and enjoy the view.

A lot of various places and times for Marian devotions and mass in many different languages including a +- 10 000 person international mass every Sunday and Wednesday morning (Basilica of Pius X). Having gone back 4 times, every time is a unique experience.

You need to be relatively fit and have a head for heights. Lots of stairs to climb for stunning views across lourdes. A very informative fort but limited information in English.
