Arrival in Lourdes & 11pm Mass at the Grotto.
Few religious sites open at night. In Lourdes, the Sanctuary is open 24/7 and mass is held every night at 11pm at the Grotto. It’s the perfect time to experience Lourdes as it radiates magic at nightfall.
Cirque de Gavarnie and Troumouse & Torchlight procession in Lourdes.
Seeing these spectacular natural cirques listed as World Heritage sites is deeply moving. Nature’s own masterpieces look like pure invention. Experiencing this great beauty fills visitors with a sense of fulfilment before the day finishes in a blaze of glory with the Lourdes torchlight procession.
Lourdes Sanctuary & departure.
Visitors are free to roam the Sanctuary site at their leisure; there is no schedule or time limit. We suggest visiting the basilicas then exploring the arcades to drink from the fountains, see the Grotto, touch the rock and light a candle. You can also come in the morning for the international mass* at 9.30am in the underground Basilica. Lourdes is famous for its international mass attended by thousands and, in certain periods, tens of thousands. Song, music, symbols, images, banners and applause burst forth in Lourdes’ 6 statuary languages (French, Italian, Spanish, English, German, Dutch). A one-of-a-kind experience.
*International mass is held every Wednesday and Sunday during pilgrimage season (April-October).

The torchlight procession
Each evening thousands of pilgrims and visitors gather to walk in procession from the Grotte des Apparitions to the Rosaire esplanade, all are bearing torches and all are singing. It is a moving sight, joyous and magical.
A World Heritage site
Five and a half kilometres in diameter, walls 1500 m high, dozens of waterfalls, impressive statistics for this wonder of nature. A natural colossus that must be seen, it adjoins the Spanish canyons.
