What to do in Lourdes? 3 activity ideas

Take the funicular to admire the view

Take the funicular and discover the Pic du Jer! Towering over Lourdes at 958 meters, this summit showcases a breathtaking panorama of the whole area, from the Pyrenees to the Sanctuary, including the lake of Lourdes and the Pays des Vallees de Gaves! Do you like to bike or hike your way around? Follow the botanical trail that starts next to the funicular!

Discover the miraculous water spring

Renowned for its natural purity, Lourdes’ springwater has led to many legends. Wrongly or not celebrated for being miraculous, Lourdes’ water has been attracting thousands of pilgrims looking to be healed every year. To discover this mysterious spring, head towards the fountains of the Sanctuary, where the spring’s water flows.

Take part in a torch-lit procession

Lourdes has many emblems, and it is also characterized by the light of its many altar candles. From April to October, torch-lit processions start at 9 o’clock at night, every night! These processions are a high point of the city life, and last about an hour, from the Cave of Apparitions to the basilica of Our Lady of Rosary.
