Description

In 1858, the Virgin Mary appeared eighteen times, in the grotto of Massabielle, to a poor 14-year-old peasant girl, named Bernadette Soubirous. Today, Lourdes welcomes 5 million pilgrims annually from over 150 countries. Even larger crowds are expected this year as Lourdes celebrates the 150th Jubilee of the apparitions.
