France Lourdes

The most famous Christian pilgrimage destination in France

After Our Lady of Lourdes was claimed to appear to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858, Lourdes developed into a major Christian pilgrimage site. Today, Lourdes has a population of around 15,000, but the town accommodates some 5,000,000 pilgrims and tourists every season.

A school trip to Lourdes can teach your students about the traditions and importance of this area. It’s an opportunity to allow your students to walk in the footsteps of the millions of pilgrims who have flocked to this important religious site for more than 150 years.
