Full description
Join a private guide on a full-day walking tour of Lourdes city center and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. Meet your guide conveniently at your hotel and set off on your informative tour.  

With your licensed guide, uncover the story of Bernadette Soubirous, a 14-year old peasant girl who saw the Mother Mary for the first time on February 11, 1858, and 18 times in total between that date and July 16, 1858. Thoroughly explore the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, visiting the Grotto of the Apparitions, the Basilicas of the Immaculate Conception, the Rosary, and St. Pius X.  

In the city center, see Soubirous’ birthplace and the cachot (prison/dungeon) where she lived at the time of the apparition. Your tour also includes a visit to the medieval Lourdes Castle, today a museum of popular arts and traditions. Take advantage of the experience of your guide to further plan your stay in Lourdes after your tour.
