Route: Toulouse - Lourdes - Bétharram Caves -  Lestelle-Bétharram - Toulouse
Duration: 10 h
The first stop of our tour will be at the second Catholic pilgrimage site in the world after Rome, the town of Lourdes became famous after the Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous at various times between 11 February and 16 July 1858. Today, the sanctuaries of Lourdes located on the banks of the Gave de Pau river attract millions of visitors and pilgrims each year. The key sites of the Religious Town are the Rosary Esplanade – dominated by the neo-Byzantine Our Lady's Basilica , the Crypt and the Immaculate Conception Basilica – the famous miraculous grotto where the Virgin appeared on 18 occasions, the underground St Pius X Basilica, the Espace Sainte-Bernadette pilgrimage centre and the Way of the Cross and its 15 stations. The entire place is imbued with a very special spiritual and mystical atmosphere. Also worth a visit in Lourdes is the fortified castle overlooking the town. Inside, the Pyrenean Museum  houses collections of objects and art relating to the history of the Pyrenees mountains. The castle ramparts offer a beautiful view over the sanctuaries and the Pyrenees. After that visit we will drive to the edge of the Béarn and Bigorre, not far from Lourdes, you'll find the beautiful caves of Bétharram. By train, by boat on the underground lake, and then on foot, discover five floors of galleries dug at different times, containing impressive geological formations alternating between stalagmites, stalactites, draperies and columns. A fairyland of concretions in many amazing shapes! A land of miracles and a Marian pilgrimage site, the village of Lestelle-Bétharram also owes its reputation to its famous Baroque sanctuary built in the 17th century. The Chapel of Our Lady with lavish interior decorations, the Chapel of St Michael Garicoits, the Fountain of St Roch, and the various stations of the cross dotted along the verdant hill are wonderful places for meditation and silence. After we will return to Toulouse.
