Heritage in the heart of the Pyrenees
While Lourdes, the world-renowned Marian city, is only a few dozen kilometres away, the religious heritage in the heart of the Pyrenees is not to be outdone and many oratories and chapels line the paths.
Some places to discover: the Escaladieu Abbey (former Cistercian abbey), the numerous baroque altar pieces, particularly well preserved and classified, the emblematic churches of Galan, Lannemezan…
Did you know that at the Chapel of Nouillan (Montoussé), 10 years before Lourdes, the Virgin Mary appeared and the site became a place of miracles and pilgrimage? The rest is to be discovered on site.
Visits and tours are organized during the year to discover the churches and their remarkable heritage.
