Lourdes, few places where everyone always greets each other while passing. Bonjour!
For us coming from big cities, it is very warm and peaceful in our heart, greeted by anyone and greets other while we don't know each other.
Prevent crowd by coming early in the morning, or late after candle light procession finished at 23.00.

This is the one and only reason to visit Lourdes, whether or not you are a Catholic, or even a Christian, it is a sight worth seeing. The setting is beautiful and the Grotto and Cathedral are beautiful as are the services which are held regularly through the day and in several languages. Highly recommended visit but don't be put off by the awful shops in the town. They are truly dreadful.

So peaceful and calm. Felt like my faith has been renewed a hundred fold. I will definitely go visit this place again and again.
