Lourdes, France



Lourdes, France is a small town in southwest France, and also the second most popular tourist place in France. Every year from March to October the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes is a place of mass pilgrimage from Europe and other parts of the world.



Lourdes is the largest Catholic pilgrimage destination in France, and one of the most popular Catholic shrines in the world.
