Worth a visit for the Engineering and the views. €12 for an adult and runs every 20 minutes. The top has been sadly neglected and the old viewing platform has been fenced off. Signposting of paths is poor. Needs sorting out really.

Yes... The main part of Lourdes where a miracle happened will probably be too far for you and your group to walk. It was probably over a mile. I don't know about advance tickets. Good luck!

Hi Jackie, The funicular is very wheelchair friendly and has all the ramps, mechanical aids I would hope you require. Enjoy the views.
