This town in the French Pyrenees is home to one of the world’s most significant Marian shrines, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims gather every year to mark the appearance of Mary to young Bernadette Soubirous (now St. Bernadette) in 1858. Filled with sacred sites, it’s a deeply spiritual and moving place to come and reflect, whether or not you want to take part in the daily masses and candle-light processions.
