Six of us ladies hiked up to the Fort of Lourdes and I must say it was one of my favorite highlights of our trip. Do not miss the adventure. You can do this on your own. You do not need a guide.

Definitely recommend a visit if you are in Lourdes. The Chateau and the museum is impressive. The route is well-planned out. The views of Lourdes are stunning even on a rainy day. Allow up to 2 hours to see everything.

Great place to visit if just for the views alone. The history is impressive and there is a lift straight up to the battlements. There are good and numerous displays, giving one an idea of life in the midi Pyrenees for all the classes that...More

If you are in Lourdes, don’t miss Lourdes Castle. The view from here would be enough for me to recommend it. The views of the city and the Sanctuaries are wonderful. It is walking distance from the central area of Lourdes. The Castle has been...More
