  • Very nice visit. We're not believers, but we've learned a lot. The path of the cross is to be made (prepare your legs it climbs). Beautiful sanctuary with a beautiful basilica. In short beautiful ride.

  • August is perhaps the best time to visit. yes, because the turnout, at least on the day I was there, isn't so annoying as to ruin your visit. Composed of 3 levels. In the lower one the church is enriched with mosaics. Pay attention to the times of the masses that prevent the visit.

  • It was amazing to see so many sick pilgrims there seeking the miraculous healing from Lourdes Water. The evening Candle Light Procession was a thrilling event to participate or watch indeed. I have got a few photos here..
  • A place full of good energy where your prayer makes sense. This is the place where in 1858 the Virgin Mary, mother fo Jesus, revealed herself to Bernadette, a little 14y old girl, as the Immaculate Conception. Until today you can feel the presence of Jesus, heaven, blessing, Holy Spirit - however you name it: God is here. Come, experience and take God home in your heart! Make your personal conversion.
