Lourdes

The Basilica


Queue to the Grotto

The Grotto of the apparitions

Passage in the Grotto

Here in 1858 the Virgin Mary appeared 18 times to Bernadette, and said: "I am the Immaculate Conception"

The flambeaux procession

Four years after the Apparitions, on 18th January 1862, the Bishop of Tarbes recognises the Apparitions as authentic in the name of the Church.

Lourdes is the major place of Roman Catholic pilgrimage and of miraculous healings.
 Today Lourdes hosts around six million visitors every year from all corners of the world.

Hi Pietro, You are absolutely the best at visiting a place and taking some wonderful photos. Your photos of Lourdes are the kind that make me want to go there and see it in person, but by the same token, if I don't get there I will have a wonderful idea of what it looks like. Thanks, as always, for sharing!

How wonderful to see your post on this magical, mystical, spiritual place. I've always been fascinated by the stories of healing and all the many people who make the pilgrimage there. Happy weekend.

Un abrazo.
