  • Nice site and one of the few things to visit in Lourdes if you're not in high season, the beautiful views

  • Passage in Lourdes we absolutely wanted to visit this castle which overlooks the town and frankly we are not disappointed. The tour is very well designed, useful explanatory booklet. An absolutely beautiful city view. Too bad for the protection in plexiglas on the Dungeon which are all engraved and prevents voluntary degradation of a few individuals to a nice picture of the sanctuary, the fault. In any case we have taken full eyes. Learned new things, and the children are delighted also.
