Lourdes is located in the South West of France close to the Spanish border and is a 50 minute transfer time from Pau Airport or a 30 minute transfer from Lourdes Airport.
Nestled at the foot of the Pyrenees and shadowed by the peaks of Vignemale, Aneto,and Montaigu (3,298 m), there are also 3 peaks within the town which reach up to 1000m these are known as Béout, the Petit Jer and the Grand Jer. You can take a mountain train or funicular up to the Grande Jer. A great view point, so take a picnic and enjoy the mountain air.
Lourdes lies at around 500m above sea level, and the fast-flowing river Gave de Pau runs through it. The Gave de Pau is popular with kayakers and white water rafters. The ‘Gave’ then branches off to the west towards the Béarn region, running past the banks of the Grotto and on downstream to Pau and then Biarritz.
On land bordered by a loop of the Gave de Pau is an outcrop of rock called Massabielle. On the northern aspect of this rock, near the riverbank, is a naturally occurring, irregularly shaped shallow cave or grotto, in which the apparitions of 1858 took place. There is a local bus service to here and you can pick up a timetable at the Lourdes Tourist Information Office.
Since the late 1800’s Lourdes has become one of the most visited towns in France. A trip to Lourdes is a trip that will never be forgotten. As you drive into Lourdes the ancient architecture and mountainous back drop will take your breath away.
Lourdes is an historic walled city, that dates back to the 8th century and was home to several Lords and royalty, the most well know was Mirat King of the Franks. He gave up everything for Christianity and the castle later on became a jail. Before 1858 there was not a lot going on in the small mountain town of Lourdes, there was a population of just 4000 local people.
An infantry garrison occupied the castle at this time. Lourdes was a passing point for those heading to the waters of Bareges, Cauterets, Luz-Saint-Sauveur and Bagnères-de-Bigorre and also the early mountaineers heading to conquer the peaks of the Pyrenees. No one expected the major event that was to transform the town of Lourdes forever.
It was 11th February 1858; a 14 year old girl of the name Bernadette Soubirous was collecting water in the remote Grotto of Massabielle when a beautiful lady appeared in front of her. The beautiful lady later identified herself as “the Immaculate Conception”, to those with faith she was the Blessed Virgin Mary. Throughout 1858 and 1859 the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared 18 times, towards the end of 1859 hundreds maybe thousands of pilgrams came to visit Lourdes and enter the Grotto of Massabielle. The town built the now famous statue of Our Lady of Lourdes in 1864.
Since the apparitions, Lourdes has become one of the most visited Catholic shrines, the number of visitors increases every year. We have been offering transfers to Lourdes since 2006 and our clients come from all over the world to step into this spiritual place.
The Pope John Paul II visited twice on the 15th August 1983 and again on the 14th August 2004. For the 150thanniversary of Our Lady of Lourdes in 2007 the Pope Benedict XVI came to pay his respects.
Lourdes is an amazing place to go on a holiday (vacation), whether you are visiting for religious reasons, for the beautiful mountain vistas or the food and wine that we have in our region. Lourdes certainly has something for everyone, and with only a short transfer or taxi from both Pau Airport and Lourdes Airport getting to Lourdes has never been quite so easy, safe and cost effective.
Lourdes is a popular choice with those heading on adventures in the Pyrenees. The Pyrenean mountain range is a playground for hikers, bikers, kayakers, whitewater rafters, climbers and also for those heading up to ski resorts such as Cauterets, St Lary, La Mongie, Gourette and all the resorts in Andorra.
You can book your transfers into the Pyrenees online with Sea-Lifts.
