Great views of Lourdes from here

We went up to the Fort to enjoy the views of Lourdes but became intrigued by the Pyrenees museum. It really has some interesting exhibits. And pretty gardens.

It is a nice castle with lovely views and some miniature houses. There were some interesting displays. Although they do not advertise it they give student discounts. It is open from 10-5 or 6 in high season. Also on Mondays!

This is a nice experience. The view up there is breathtaking. It costs about 7Euros to visit the fort. Information is given to you before you take the lift. Once you arrive up there, the view is just WOW!!

Access to the castle is easy for people with disabilities, children and older people, there is a lift .View from the castle to Lourdes as a view birds from the air. Castle is nice but garden around is something awesam and atractive. You can see old local culture.

It was a good site to visit. Very tranquil. There were people from all over the world for different purpose. I was not there for a religious reason but was very impressed. All the entrance is FREE but you can give donation which is used for maintenance of the site.

Easily accessible being in the center of town. The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular and make the visit worthwhile on their own. The guide that you are given is quite basic but adequate and is available in several languages. The displays of typical Pyreanian ways of life were interesting but could have done with a little...
