INTIMATELY LINKED TO THE VAST ARCHITECTURAL COMPOSITION OF THE SANCTUARIES OF LOURDES, IT IS THE ELEMENT THAT FORMS THE ESSENTIAL PART OF ITS IMAGE WITH, IN PARTICULAR, THE DISPOSITION OF THE TWO LARGE ELLIPTICAL RAMPS IN THE AXIS OF THE ESPLANADE.
The Basilica of Notre-Dame du Rosaire, a vast Greek cross with a surface area of 2,000 square meters, was conceived as the pedestal of the Basilica of the IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, which is located above the Grotto.
It is a monument of great interest because of the ornamentation of Venetian mosaics spread over 2,000 m2.
Discover Lourdes, a town in the Pyrenees that has become one of the most significant pilgrimage sites in the world. This is since the apparitions in 1858 of the Virgin Mary to Bernadette Soubirous.
Enter the sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. Pass by the grotto of the apparitions. Then admire the three basilicas: look up at the stained glass windows of the Immaculate Conception, contemplate the Venetian mosaics of Notre-Dame du Rosaire, and enter the underground basilica of Saint Pius X. Everywhere, the emotion and fervor are palpable and create a unique atmosphere.
