All within close reach from the hotel, the catholic legacy continues today with millions of pilgrimages yearly.
A very special, and always heart felt experience, to catholic and non catholic visitors alike.. Especially at the 9 pm nightly procession (a must see magical Catholic experience for all) and the well documented healing powers of the blessed water that flow from the grotto.
We are a boutique hotel,perfectly set for pilgrimages and visits to Lourdes. Our bed and breakfast and half board options provide flexibility for individuals our groups alike.
We are situated within 300 metres frclose to the sanctuary gates and similary close to all local amenities.
Our bus connection (immediately opposite the hotel 10m from the front door) provides connections with the town centre, the train station which in inturn provides a connection to Lourdes/Tarbes Airport and the world beyond.
In 1858 Lourdes rose to prominence in France and abroad due to the Marian apparitions claimed to have been seen by the peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous, who was later canonized. Shortly thereafter the city with the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes became one of the world's most important sites of pilgrimage and religious tourism.
Today Lourdes hosts around seven million visitors every year from all corners of the world. This constant stream of pilgrims and tourists transformed quiet Lourdes into the second most important center of tourism in France, second only to Paris, and the third most important site of international Catholic pilgrimage after Rome and the Holy Land. As of 2011, of French cities only Paris had more hotel capacity.
