“For the past 18 years I have been to Lourdes with Tangney Tours. This company is amazing and very professionally run. They go out of their way to make the pilgrimage to Lourdes run so smoothly.
I highly recommend them.”

Lourdes

Lourdes candles

Since the apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1858, millions of people from all over the world have flocked to Lourdes every year to experience the grace of this place. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes is above all the place of healing of bodies and hearts where one comes to pray humbly to the one who revealed her name to Bernadette Soubirous: “I am the Immaculate Conception”.

Coming to Lourdes for the first time means first of all looking at and discovering this place where the Virgin Mary appeared eighteen times in 1858. It means feeling the faith of the thousands of pilgrims who respond to Our Lady’s call to “come here in procession” and observing the hope of all the sick pilgrims who come to the Grotto for a little comfort and – why not – the grace of healing. Seeing the charity of all those, volunteers and hospitallers, who come to serve others, means experiencing the Message of Lourdes in practice.
