Somewhat noisy in here from all the pilgrims but a magnificent place to visit and pray. Often there are Masses to attend in this most beautiful crypt.

You’re going to be in the entrance anyway if you’re at the Basilique area, so going in is a no-brainer and may take you 10’ to visit. Sometimes they may have something that belonged to St Bernadette but sometimes the object may be on loan/travelling...More

The crypt itself is a rather small place of worship, almost as though just a place to sit in quiet reflection. You enter the crypt chapel via a long corridor covered with hundreds of messages of thanks. In the Crypt of the Basilica of the...More

Arrived here on a Sunday morning whilst a mass in Spanish was taking place. It was very moving and spiritual even though I speak English and French! Beautiful crypt, very small and with low vaulted ceilings.

Very beautiful and peaceful place, part of the Sanctuary of Lourdes. Nevertheless, please keep in mind that the most important and sacred place of Lourdes is the Grotto of Massabielle, located just under this Church.

This is a place for quiet reflection and prayer. There are clear signs saying silence is to be observed. Very tranquil and serene to be closer to God

The Chapel at this Crypt struck me as a sacred place for quiet meditation and reflection by visitors.

This is a crypt and small chapel. It is a nice, quiet place to just sit for a bit and absorb the atmosphere. It is rather plain but still worth a quick look.

Much les crowded than the Basilica, more propice for personal reflection. Great view of the sanctuary.

Not as ornate as a cathedral, but still worth the visit and a perfect spot for quiet prayer or small group gathering.
