Full description
On this tour a local guide will take you on a tour to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, one of the world’s 3 Catholic shrines - the others being the Vatican and Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. Your guide will tell you the story of Bernadette and how it changed destiny of this small Pyrenean town.

After pick-up from your hotel, head to the Sanctuary, where you will visit the three Basilicas and the Grotto of Massabielle. The Grotto is the site where the Virgin is said to have appeared to the young Bernadette 18 times in 1858.

In the afternoon, follow in St. Bernadette's footsteps by visiting her birthplace, known as “Le Moulin de Boly”, and a place called "Le Cachot", where she lived with her family during the Apparitions time.

This full day tour will also give you the opportunity to attend a mass at the Sanctuary.
