Easily accessible being in the center of town. The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular and make the visit worthwhile on their own.

Historical Castle located in Lourdes with magnificent views. A great way to explore and add to your Pilgrimage. Our kids had a wonderful experience exploring the fortress. A must to see for everyone while visiting Lourdes!

Stunning views over the whole of Lourdes! Came up on a lovely sunny day and had a great time walking around the fort and chateau. Really interesting exhibits inside the fort teaching you all you need to know about its history! Would definitely recommend.

Highly experience when I walked inside the site and touch the rock where St. Bernette was there the water came out of the ground after all the public were mocked at her. But the water is still coming out as of today. Glad I made it here to share this with others.

It is a beautiful place and nice to see from further because you can see the landscape around it. Clean and nice river, very quiet and peaceful area. Beautiful inside and outside. For me as Asian people, seeing European scenery like Chateau Fort of Lourdes, it was beautiful and felt the calmness.
