A quite remarkable piece of engineering. In effect, a cathedral the size of Wembley but all underground! Whatever your faith or indeed if you have none, this is an incredible place to visit.

This is the iconic upper church with the 3 spires that you see in many of the photos of the sanctuary. The most interesting thing about this church was that St. Bernadette visited the crypt before she died (it was the only part finished). It...More

I have never visited a basilica that size, just above the grotto, it cannot be missed. One of the popular places to visit. Incredible architectural style we have never seen before. Although it is a popular place with visitors from various parts of the world,once...More

Large Basilica built above the Grotto of Massabielle, Basilica Notre Dame du Rosarie and the Crypt. This is the imposing building you first notice when entering the Sanctuary of Lourdes. It can be accessed either via the street, ramps or stairs.

This is the Church right above the Grotto of Massabielle, inside the Sanctuary of Lourdes. Bernadette Soubirous informed that the Superior Spirit which appeared to her asked for a Chapel in the Grotto, in order to preserve and divulge Spirituality. Not only Bernadette did get...More

Above the Grotto which is so central to the Sanctuary of Lourdes raises the Church of Immaculate Conception, the church commemorating what happened here in 1858. It is an impressive building and although the Church underneath, the Basilica of the Rosary, may be larger and...More

This Basilica, perched on top of the grotto where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette, is absolutely breathtaking. There's no way you'll miss it if you go to Lourdes. However, I found visiting the Grotto itself much more spiritually inspiring.
