Approximate taxi costs from Lourdes train station to

pilgrimage sites..

I am going to be staying at the Hotel Solitude but am uncertain how far away this is from the train station in Lourdes.

Thanks

A taxi from the station to the Solitude will cost about 10 Euros (depending on numbers and the amount of luggage).

Have just done the walk from the Lourdes train station down the hill as suggested into the centre of town. It's an easy short walk, and then a further easy short walk to the shrine site.

Even for people not there for the pilgrimages, this is a fascinating sight (and site) as you enter the gates and see hundreds of crosses in front of you from different pilgrimages around the world.

Try to get there before 5pm to see the daily mass and march by the priests from around the world from outside the church down through the crowd and then into the underground auditorium.

It's a colourful sight and really refreshing whether or not you're a believer to see the colourful procvessions of pilgrims from around the world, some carrying crosses, others with colourful banners.

At the shrine site itself behind the church, you can see why it's inspiring - natural countryside containing a rock grotto where people line up to bottle and even wash in the pure spring water coming out of the rocks.

There's definitely something here which is inspirational even to the hardest souls.
