Pictures of Lourdes


Lourdes is a small town. In the southwest France. Even smaller than Tarbes. It has only 13.000 residents. But the tourism is hell active here. In 2000, 5.000.000 of tourists came. The city itself only has 2 real landmarks. The main reason of tourism is the catholic pilgrimage. Lourdes is a holy place where miracle are supposed to happen. I lived there for 1 year, but it's not possible. The huge tourism kills every possible life.

The Basilique Notre Dame du Rosaire is built on the holy place itself. It has nothing really special and it rather modern. You can see the big esplanade in front of it. And the two ramps on its side.

The second landmarks is the castle.

And the town itself.

"To erect a tall building is to proclaim one’s faith in the future, the skyline is a seismograph of optimism."
Jean Nouvel
