Lourdes is the second largest place of Catholic pilgrimage in the world after Rome. From Easter to All Saints' Day, 6 million faithful come here to pray in the famous grotto of Massabielle, the place where apparitions of the Virgin appeared to young Bernadette Soubirous. Situated on the edge of the Béarn and the Bigorre, it is a good base for some superb hikes.
