The Sanctuary of our Lady of Lourdes or the Domain  (as it is commonly known) is considered as the most spiritual place of Lourdes, a destination for pilgrimage. People from all over the world come to take a dip in the icy-cold Lourdes water. At present, the ground is owned and looks after by Roman Catholics Church. They hold various religious programs, functions and arrange accommodations for the sick pilgrims and their helpers. The Domain also includes the Grotto that is said to be the replica of the one at Our Lady of Lourdes.

There is a myth surrounding the Domain that, in 1858, Virgin Mary had appeared in front of a 14-year old girl. This fact has somehow played a significant role in making this place as one of the religious destination.

  • This is a wonderful place for the faithful and even for atheists. We had spent a day and night in this little town of Lourdes. The spiritual experience that we had from here is unbelievable. We visited this Basilica with kids and they enjoyed the stay and prayers too. The procession and the bathe in the holy water was rejuvenating. Loved to see the gathering of the sick and the healthy people in this prayerful environment. When you travel with kids, the administration allows you to places with priority as many f them donor come with kids.

  • One of the most important places for the Christians, deserve a visit once in the life. Impressing how many people, devote from all around the world, and how many infirm put their life in the holy virgin. Even the simple visitor couldn't visit Lourdes without reflect about the faith and religion.

  • A very very spiritual place. People from all over the world come here to participate in the procession and prayer. You have to come here and get a candle, get in that procession. Divine. Chill out in front of the place. It is really nice on a summers night. We were lucky enough to witness people dancing to their traditional music in front of the church. It was a lament for Our Lady

  • I loved this shrine! When you come, allow yourself at least an hour to walk the stations of the cross, there are dozens of people at each station and it's very hard to pass them. Also the path is rocky and uphill; I would recommend wearing good shoes. I highly recommend visiting the 3 basilicas along with attending a 21:30 rosary procession also.

  • There are so many reasons one makes the pilgrimage to this place, we are there too share all the experiences of the visit. So many wonderful surprises, as they are made especially for you, as an individual.
