Barcelona to Lourdes

How long does it take to drive from Barcelona to Lourdes? Is there a "relatively" direct train route? Should we just fly to save the hassle?

Thanks!

You can use www.viamichelin.com for accurate information on car travel times.

One thing you don't want to do is rent car in Spain and drop it off in France (just in case that was part of your plan).

It may seem fairly close on a map but the Pyrenees are a huge geographic obstacle. So a suitable driving route might look something like this: http://goo.gl/maps/j5kjR

If time wasn't an issue then you could take your time and go over the Pyrenees stopping at villages on the way.

By train it takes about 8 hours with at three changes of train needed. There are currently two such possible train trips each day.

Vueling fly Barcelona - Lourdes but not every day.

PS this is the Biarritz forum. Wrong forum I think.
