House Museum of Bernadette Soubirous is a signature landmark of Lourdes. Absolutely everyone is welcome to see the old house, in which a girl, who later became the saint patron of the city, was born and spent her first years of life. Nowadays, her house exhibits an interesting collection of historical and religious artifacts. Besides that, there is a wax figure museum in Lourdes, the exhibition of which is also in some way dedicated to the religious theme.
Fans of natural landmarks will also not be disappointed in this miniature historic town. The Pyrenees National Park starts not far from the settlement. The majority of interesting hiking trails are available to tourists in warmer months. This is the time when vacationers can explore the gorgeous mountain region, climb up several hills, and admire the breathtaking panorama that they offer.
Lourdes is particularly full of travelers and pilgrims in the period from April until October. If you plan to visit the resort during these months, it is better to book a hotel in advance. It is also important to mention that prices are quite affordable in local hotels and restaurants despite hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit this resort every year. It is not hard to book a room for 100 dollars a night even at a high-class hotel.
