What's Lourdes Like?
The region of Lourdes is most popular for being a pilgrimage site, the most famous of them being the Marian apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes. However, the town also attracts millions of non-pilgrims with its spectacular scenic beauty as well as rich history and culture. Known for its greenery and serene surroundings, the Notre Dame of Lourdes Sanctuary is a must-visit for both pilgrims and tourists alike. The spring waters from the grotto in Lourdes are considered to have miraculous powers and have been the reported source of many healings. Another gorgeous tourist attraction is the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Saint Mary's, with its stunning architecture and Byzantine-era design. The Château fort de Lourdes, is a historic castle at the entrance of the seven valleys of the Lavedan.
How to Get Along with Local People in Lourdes
The French are fairly open minded, but a bit more conservative than other Europeans when it comes to things like doing business and eating. It would be useful to watch your table manners, as the locals tend to take it as an insult if not done properly. The locals love wine, and any invitation to dine or hang out with one of them should be accompanied by a bottle. Public drunkenness however, is heavily frowned upon, especially in this region that is considered to be most sacred. The town is served by the local airport of Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees, and the local train station offers TGV services as well as regular train services, meaning that getting to and from the town is not a problem.
