A very calm and exclusive place to be. The atmosphere in the evenings is electrifying with candlelight procession.

Despite the throngs of pilgrims, if you put yourself in the right frame of mind--as that of a pilgrim, giving thanks, paying homage, immersing yourself in the beauty and power or the place, and the odd but wonderful way most pilgrims try to be kinder--you...More

The Sanctuary is truly impressive with two churches, one on the ground level and one above it accessed by lots of stairs or long ramps. We only opted for the ground level-we were nursing sore knees and preparing for a long walk in Spain. We...More

There is so much to see inside the chapels and all around the grounds each time you go back you find something that you never saw before.

the sanctuary is impressive. The basilic is big but not tremendously interesting as building. The atmosphere of prayer and adoration is, even for a non-catholic, impressive. The ten thousands of people from all over the world, healthy and/or ill, all praying together is an unforgettable...More

No matter how many times I go to Lourdes it never fails to bring a sense of peace and tranquility. So many people from so many nations and all at peace with one another.

Catholic assistance in several languages, including masses and confessions. On Sundays, there are Masses in Portuguese with a Brazilian priest. Santuário muito bem estruturado e muito bonito.

We will be driving and thinking about staying a little outside of Lourdes in October. How is the parking near the religious sites?

I've only needed to park near the Sanctuary a few times, and have found spots on Quai Saint-Jean. We usually stay at a hotel within walking distance. I think you shouldn't have trouble finding parking in October.
how far away is the sanctuary from the Lourdes airport? Are there taxis or public transportation at the airport? How much is the taxi fare?

25 mins drive and fare not more than €30.Make sure you ask the driver first if you want to pay by card . Must take the taxi from the taxi stand and taxi should have taxi number if not do not go with them . Trust me !
