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.
Walk in the Pyrenean Garden of Eden in Cauterets-Pont d’Espagne & Thermal baths & Torchlight procession.
A relaxing and rejuvenating day out. After strolling through the Pyrenean Garden of Eden, you can take a break in the naturally hot and nurturing water at Les Bains du Rocher in Cauterets before joining the radiant and dreamy torchlight procession in Lourdes.
Cirque de Gavarnie and Troumouse & Gourmet meal at Le Viscos.
A more intense day out. Seeing the spectacular Cirques is deeply moving. Feast your eyes then feast your senses at Le Viscos in Saint-Savin run by Jean-Pierre and Alexis Saint-Martin. The local institution is tucked away in a charming village perched on a rocky outcrop. Work up your appetite with a magical few minutes walking from Place de Saint-Savin to Notre-Dame-de-Piétat Chapel on a headland overlooking the valley. Drink in the views on the terrace in the shade of the lime trees.
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).
