Pilgrimage to Lourdes - Faith-Based Travel

On this faith-based tour, spend five nights in Lourdes, one of the world’s most famous pilgrimage sites located in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. Here, in 1858, a 14-year-old girl named Bernadette saw apparitions of the Virgin Mary 18 times. Today, pilgrims from all over the world flock to Lourdes for its spiritual powers.

On this tour to Lourdes, you’ll learn about St. Bernadette. You’ll visit her birthplace, her family home, and the Grotto where she witnessed the apparitions. During your walking tour, you’ll visit Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine. At your own pace, you can visit the Basilica, attend the Sanctuary’s official celebrations, pray, meditate the Rosary, attend Mass, visit the Grotto, follow the Way of the Cross, and visit the baths where the Holy Virgin asked Bernadette to “go drink at the spring and wash yourself there” and that are believed to have healing waters. Every evening, you can join other pilgrims in the Candlelight Marian Procession and attend the 11 pm Mass in the Grotto.

On this spiritual journey to Lourdes, you’ll also enjoy a guided visit of Chateau-Fort, a fortified castle built during Roman times and perched on a rocky outcrop with remarkable views. With its drawbridge, watchtowers, and walls, it is now a museum telling the history and culture of the area.

Accompanied by a dedicated Tour Director and other savvy, value-minded travelers desiring an inspirational journey, this pilgrimage to Lourdes is the perfect way to reaffirm your faith.
