Follow the Footsteps of a Saint Through This Prized Pilgrimage Town
Depart for the town of Lourdes on this full day trip from Toulouse. In the morning we will come and pick you up at your centrally located hotel in Toulouse. Meet your English speaking driver who will go over the itinerary and program of the day. Then it will be time to board your air conditioned minivan and depart for Lourdes.
Following the reports that Our Lady of Lourdes had appeared to Bernadette Soubirous on a total of eighteen occasions in 1858, Lourdes has developed into a major place of Roman Catholic pilgrimage and of miraculous healing. The 150th Jubilee of the first apparition took place on 11 February 2008 with an outdoor mass attended by more than ten thousand pilgrims.
Upon arrival, visit the sanctuary which is the largest pilgrimage site where all the major churches are located as well as the grotto where the apparitions of the Virgin Mary took place. After a short walking tour enjoy some free time to visit the underground basilica, the rosary basilica and walk to the Grotto. There, it is possible to fill bottles of the holy water of Lourdes and take time to meditate near the Grotto. In the afternoon, follow your guide on the footsteps of Bernadette. During this walking tour in town, visit the house of Bernadette – the Boly Mill and then reach the ‘Cachot’, the small room where the family lived in the most difficult times. After the walking tour, we will drive you back to Toulouse and that will be the end of our services.
