Lourdes, “Marian city”

LourdesMore than 5 million visitors come to Lourdes every year.

The spirituality belongs to history and leaves an impression in the present thanks to its beauty, its legacy and the devotion of the sanctuaries.

Lourdes was just a little village on 11st February 1858 when Bernadette Soubirous met a “woman” by the riverside of Gave. This woman would give this village the distinction of Marian city…

Nowadays there are 230 hotels that place the city in the second place on the range of touristic villages of France.
