LOURDES BY LUXURY COACH

 

The origins of the Pilgrimages to Lourdes began on February 11th 1858, when 14 year old Bernadette Soubirous saw he first of 18 apparitions of our Lady at the Grotto of Massabielle in the little town of Lourdes.

 

 

Lourdes went from being in a small village in the Pyrenees to becoming the largest Catholic Pilgrimage destination in Europe. Each year millions of Pilgrams now travel to visit this special site. While in Lourdes you will have plenty of time to explore the main sites in the town aswell as attending a morning mass and taking part in the nightly torchlight procession.

The Sanctury of our Lady of Lourdes, where the sacred Grotto and the two Basilicas are located, embraces 22 places of worship and numerous facilities for the Pilgrims and the sick, as well as the spring that began to flow from the spot, dug by Bernadette on our Lady's instructions.

 

 

Today more than five million people stand before that same rock each year, seeking healing in a place that has become synonymous with miracles. They light candles, march in procession and drink from the water that flaws from the grotto. Most of all they pray, following the examples set by the simple peasant girl who was transfixed by a radiant vision of light on that February day.
