Luckily it was a quiet day for us so found it easy to walk around and take it all in. Well worth the walk up the steps. Beautiful architecture.

Visiting Massiabeille, it is a must that apart from going to spend time for Adoration at the Grotto of Our Lady, one has to go round the several Basilicas and churches surrounding the area which all have their different characteristics.

Large Basilica built above the Grotto of Massabielle, Basilica Notre Dame du Rosarie and the Crypt. This is the imposing building you first notice when entering the Sanctuary of Lourdes. It can be accessed either via the street, ramps or stairs.
