Lourdes Pilgrimage & Rocamadour

Lourdes offers a delightful position at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains and had been a strategic stronghold for centuries. The apparition of Saint Bernadette in the 19th century led to Rocamadour becoming one of the greatest religious pilgrimage sites in Europe. Rocamadour is one of the great sights of France and a centre of pilgrimage. It is a wonderfully preserved medieval town built on a cliff face with the battlements and chapel on top and houses clinging to its sides. The regions around Rocamadour and Lourdes are exceptionally picturesque and offer some of the best touring in France, from caves and heritage towns to mountains and exceptional vistas.
