See 2 sensational Pyrenees locations with a tour of the pilgrim city of Lourdes and a trip to the spectacular mountain village of Cauterets-Pont d'Espagne. Get spiritual enlightenment at the Baslilicas of Lourdes and walk to the gateway of the Pyrenees.
What to Expect
This full day tour combines spiritual enlightenment with spectacular natural scenery as you explore the legendary pilgrim city of Lourdes at the foothills of the Pyrenees, before heading into the mountain for enervating views over mountain peaks.
After a hotel pick-up in Lourdes, your guide will take you to the Sanctuary where you will visit the 3 Basilicas of the Immaculate Conception, the Rosary and the Underground, as well as the Grotto where the Virgin appeared 18 times.
You will get a greater understanding of what exactly happened in the city 150 years ago that turned it into a major center for Catholic pilgrims.
Continue your tour at the charming mountain village of Cauterets, famous for its thermal baths, magnificent ski slopes and delicious “berlingots” bonbons.
Water reigns supreme in Cauterets and you will see many waterfalls tumbling over the rocks and lining the scenic road that winds through pine trees. It is this road that you will take to a natural site known as the Pont d'Espagne, the very gateway to the Pyrenees National Park.
Walk down a short path and you will get a view of the famous bridge that hangs over the gushing water that gave its name to the area.
Admire panoramic views and crystalline waters, praised by the author Victor Hugo and beloved by the Romantics. Heart filled with beauty, it will be time to return to Lourdes for your hotel drop-off.
