Pilgrimage to Lourdes
Our Pilgrimage to Lourdes began in Paris and traveled northwest through Giverny (Monet's home and water lily gardens) to the Normandy beaches and American Cemeteries and beyond to the famed Abbey at Mont St. Michel. From there, we traveled down through the French countryside to the wine region of Bordeaux. Enjoy a 3-hour lunch cruise on the Garonne River on our way to Toulouse and the medieval walled-in city of Carcassonne. The climax of the journey was the Shrine at Lourdes and the seaside village of Biarritz on the Atlantic coast.
