Basilica of our Lady of the Rosary of Lourdes

Native: Basilique Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire de Lourdes

Lourdes city has one of the lovely tourist attractions - the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary (Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire). This neobyzantian basilica was designed by architect Leopold Hardy and completed in 1899. It can accommodate about 1500 people. There is an absolutely amazing dome inside this attraction and the image of the Virgin Mary with outstretched arms surrounded by angels and the magnificent frescoes on the 15 subjects of the traditional rosary in the nave. Quite recently (in 2006-2007) Basilica has undergone restoration and renewal. The image of John Paul II appeared among the frescoes on the outside. And there is a gold cross and crown on the dome. This gift from the people of Ireland was made in 1924. There is the monument of St. Bernadette, who reminds about the miraculous recovery of the hopelessly ill, next to the square of the rosary. Visiting this holiday destinations brings many pleasant and harmonious feelings.
