“Really interesting!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I have never heard of Lourdes' Grotto until this year. We kind of stumbled upon it, and it was really cool. I'd love to know more information about it.

“Worth seeing!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We visit yearly to the site. It is very humbling. There are two sides to see and people go often. It is located on the south of the island so it is a little tough to get to.

“Worth It”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Lourdes Grotto
Seroe Preto, San Nicolas, Aruba
Visited here on 2 August 2013. We were looking for it and thought we made a wrong turn but manage to stumble on it. We were glad we did. To us it was beautiful and it was worth it. The Lourdes Grotto (Grot di Lourdes is located and built in Seroe Preto (black hill), on the southeast coast near San Nicolas. On the opposite side of the road across from the Lourdes Grotto (commemoration of the Virgin Mary) is another shrine built into the rocks also. In 1958 the Grot di Lourdes was created under the direction of a priest called Erkamp; the Virgin Mary statue was placed in the grotto and blessed by Monsieur Holterman. You can bring a candle if you like to leave it lit. For those of us who enjoy our religion or religious life this was a nice site to visit. You will have to climb steps up. But this was worth it to us.

“beautiful”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

very peaceful place. Enjoyed my short stay to reflect upon my life. The drive is easy and it's well signed. It's a nice change from the typical Aruba tourism.

“Off the beaten path”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

A nice road trip, got to see more of the island. It was at the south part of the island, San Nicolas, of course there are no road signs, but they did have occasional signs directing you to the grotto. We spent about 30 minutes there, remote, but I enjoyed the statues and took some very nice pictures. If you have lots of time in Aruba, I would tell you to go. You only need to see it once.
