Sorry, no idea. But out of curiosity, do you actually believe that the apparitions happened?

My granny used to go to Lourdes. I haven't heard it mentioned since she died nearly 30 years ago. But Wiki tells me that up to 5 million people can visit every season and that "the 150th Jubilee of the first apparition took place on February 11 2008 with a outdoor mass attended by approx 45,000 pilgrims."

Crikey. That's a lot of continuing devotion to a silly hoax, and a serious money-spinner for the town.

you will need a miracle to get a room there

I stopped at Lourdes many years ago out of curiousity when driving back from Spain. I went as my mum was ill and wanted to get some water. It may have been imagined but I thought that there was an aura about the place. Can really explain but there was a definite feeling of something. Water was unsuccessful but if others gain something from visiting these places I am all for it. Just against the idea of people being ripped off for it along the way.

The Med is pretty fancy and has a car park. It's no more than five or ten mins walk from the sanctuary, and closer to the best pub in Lourdes, the Cafe Jeanne D'Arc. Any of the hotels on Rue Paradis should be pretty reasonable, it's where us helpers got put up so it must be cheap! Though if you're going during the high season you'll need to be booking now...

The grotto is nice, get down at night if you can, and be sure to see the candlelight procession.

Well I imagine there would be an 'aura' about the place if it is full of wide-eyed miracle believers. I imagine that quite apart from the fact that it is swilling with the pious, that there are signs and symbols of the 'miarcle' and other such religious imagery everywhere you look.

Disneyland has an aura about it too.... :)

I'm sure it has but as has been shown on many occasions mind over matter can get people past many difficult episodes. If somewhere like Lourdes has that effect it cant all bad. As I have already stated, the thing that bothers me is when places like this set out to rip people off. They do charge for almost everything which I find distasteful. Every other shop sells special 'Lourdes water bottles'. I would imagine that hotels charge premium rates as well. I think that is wrong as many people will go off the cuff and not have the oportunity to research for the best possible rates

The anti-educational aspect of It all bothers me much more than the hawkers ripping people off. Rip-off merchants are everywhere.

And there are much better ways to help people get over their difficulties than nourishing their delusions imo. To be fair though, the apparatus is already firmly in place with religions, so it's probably one of the easiest options for people....

I googled lourdes and accomodation and there are many hotels that are listed. You can also get google street view for the lordes region so you can browse some of the town.
Depending on your own travel arrangements and the health of any potential visitors this campsite might be a fall back option. It has mobile homes for rent
