Lourdes is the largest Catholic pilgrimage site in France. Although the city has only 17,000 inhabitants, every year millions of believers come here on pilgrimage. The town is built around the appearance of the Virgin Mary to Bernadette in the grotto Massabielle to Bernadette Soubrirous in 1858.

Lourdes (Gascon Occitan Lorda or Lourde) is a commune in the Hautes-Pyrénées department in the Midi-Pyrénées region in south-western France. The former regional language of this area used to be Gascon Occitan (or Gasconha, Occitània which was the spoken language at the time of Saint Bernadette Soubirous), but has been largely supplanted by French as in many regions of France.
