Very Good
Lourdes is worth seeing but beware of high tourist seasons where the lines to get to the shrines and holy water can exceed 10 hours. January was chilly but low tourist counts enabled us to see everything without long waits.

We went in January. Its not a pilgrimage season. Was very quiet. We loved it. Therefore most of places were shut if you want restaurants/cafes

Loved it all. Message of Lourdes, peaceful atmosphere and Great mountain walks. The silence of the Grotto and Welcome for all. More information in written English would have been useful.

Bus system is hard to figure out. You do a lot of walking. The crowds are in the summer. No confessions going on. Had only part of a mass ...in Italian. Go with a group. The castle museum is great and it has an elevator.

It's a wonderful experience visiting Lourdes especially the Grotto where our Lady appeared to Saint Bernadette. I highly recommend the holy bath.

we came in November we expect cold weather but it was 20 degrees and warm. it was nice

The history and significance for those with deep religious beliefs

Of course the most tranquil place is at the Grotto.

GO in December or rather avoid July to September.

Cathedral and Grotto

The Rosary Chapel.
