The place to be when visiting Lourdes is the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. It all began in 1858, when the Virgin Mary appeared eighteen times to the young Bernadette Soubirous.
The world-famous shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes welcomes millions of pilgrims and visitors every year. Its atmosphere and the energy it exudes cannot leave you unmoved...
A privileged natural setting at the gateway to the Pyrenees, for rich and varied activities. Lakes and rivers, peat bogs, forests and mountains offer, just a few kilometres from the town centre, a wide variety of landscapes for a wide range of outdoor activities. In Lourdes, you can enjoy the great outdoors, disconnect from stress and worries, reconnect with what is essential, and above all take care of yourself!
Welcome to Lourdes.

Chateau Fort de Lourdes
7 km from the city centre

Cirque de Gavarnie
57 km from the city centre
The cirque de Gavarnie is a limestone amphitheatre of spectacular dimensions. 1500 metres high, this vertical wall has a circumference of 6.5 km. At its heart flows the Grande Cascade, source of the Gave de Pau, 423 m high, one of the highest waterfalls in Europe. the reputation of the cirque de gavarnie has been built by the various explorations it has generated. Botanists, scientists, poets, mountaineers in search of exploits or sensations have, since the 16th century, made Gavarnie the cradle of what is called Pyreneanism. The cirque is easily discovered, on foot or on horseback, by an easy 2 to 3 hour round trip starting from the villafe de Gavarnie .
Le Pic du Midi
47 km from the city centre
To reach the summit of the Pic du Midi, simply let yourself be transported during a splendid ascent. All year round, summer and winter, go to La Mongie, the ski resort of the Domaine du Tourmalet. 1000 m of difference in height in 15 minutes in the cable car... just enough time to be awake before reaching the Pic at 2877 m of altitude.
La voie verte des Gaves
Situated at the foot of the summits and the great Pyrenean passes, this cycle path follows the Gave de Pau, and winds its way between the welcoming slopes of the mountains. The Voie verte des Gaves rolls out its carpet towards the summits, linking Lourdes to Pierrefitte-Nestalas over a distance of 17 km.
Pont d'Espagne
A few kilometres from Lourdes is the Pont d'Espagne site. In the heart of the Pyrenees National Park, let yourself be amazed by the emblematic fauna and flora, as well as by breathtaking landscapes...
Les grottes de Betharram
14 km from the city centre
Located between Pau and lourdes. During a 1h20 guided tour, you will cross a mountain that has been dug by water over the centuries. A subterranean world, sublimated by the particularly careful lighting. The richness of the forms stimulates the imagination throughout the visit. After visiting the first floor of the Caves, you descend the 250 steps of the Gouffre which lead to the underground river. With 800 mothers of rock above you, you take a pleasant boat ride. The journey continues with the little train that takes you back to the exit.
Le lac de Gaube

The Rocger baths will allow you to make the most of the end of your day, unless you prefer to stroll through a village and contemplate some of the Belle Epoque buildings typical of the 19th century. Those with a sweet tooth will stop to taste the berlingot de Cauterets, a sour sweet made in the Cauterets shops, or will fall for a blueberry pie...
