About your trip
About The Best Shrines of France:
Over the course of twelve (12) days, travel through nine (9) towns and cities to experience the Best Shrines that France has to offer. Start in Lourdes nestled within the Pyrenees Mountains where you will visit the magnificent Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes with the opportunity to drink from the miraculous spring, submerge yourself in the healing baths, and join in the nightly candlelight procession and Rosary. Heading north, you will visit St. Sernin’s Basilica in Toulouse and the Shrine of Our Lady of Rocamadour overlooking the Alzou Valley. In Paray le Monial reflect in the Chapel of the Visitation where Jesus exposed His Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alcoque. Drive through picturesque Loire Valle to Nevers to tour the Convent of Saint Gilard. Explore Chartres Cathedral Notre Dame, known worldwide for its massive stained-glass window, also referred to as “the high point of French Gothic art.” Take a somber trip to Normandy to see the beaches where D-Day took place and visit the American Cemetery and World War II Museum. Explore the life of St. Therese in Lisieux and finish your Pilgrimage in Paris - “the City of Lights”.
