It was a rainy day (more like occasional showers so no need to cancel) so my mother and I were already feeling a little upset about this. However, by the end our moods had completely changed thanks to Laure. It was genuinely more than we could have expected. It was a real private tour with all attention focused on us and the beautiful city. I loved the historical aspect of the tour. You get to learn so many behind the scenes moments that then make you want to buy ten books to keep learning more. We learned about Bernadette and even saw how and where she lived. The nicest thing though, was that Laure, our tour guide, seemed to know all the shop owners or museum workers where we went. She is so dedicated to the tour that even people enjoy having her bring guests over. The hidden Basilica was impressive in itself, but then the tour guide (Laure) taught us the history behind all the details and you are even more mind blow. The wall art you could pass by without much notice, but she pointed out the detail of the glass used and how they were created- and yet again left in awe. The last stop was the Chateau Fort or Fortress of Lourdes which includes the Pyrenean museum. Standing among thousands of years of historical architecture was gratifying in itself. The view is spectacular. With the museum you get to learn the people's way of being in Lourdes before all the modern pleasantries: how they dressed, how they decorated, how they ate, hunted, slept, worked, etc. There is also a botanical garden that the last owner had installed an it includes miniatures of all the types of homes you could find people of the Pyrenees living in. Laure (tour guide) even had all these stories and legends about the castle and the name "Lourdes" she told us. The tour was supposed to be around 2 hours, but with the rain things slowed down. Laure was so amazing she never made us feel rushed. She took her time and took our pictures at times. She was one of the best tour guides we have had. P.S.: buy the famous cake at the outdoor market they have at Les Halles- not the shops. Also, you can buy the candles for the sanctuary at a gift shop in front of the entrance for a good price.
