One of the most visited towns in France, Lourdes is a major pilgrimage spot for Roman Catholics. Over seven million come here annually to celebrate Our Lady of Lourdes, who appeared as an apparition calling for the founding of a chapel at this very spot.Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers

I have a soft spot for religious sites...
This happens to be a religious site. Generally religious sites have a lot going for them.. architecture, history, views, location, etc.
There's something to be said when you are at a site that people of faith become pilgrims and journey to. This is again one of those places. I admit that I got in line for the water to drink and bottle. Who knows if there's anything to it beyond that of faith. But then again I think that most travelers would agree, that I see life as being a cup half full rather than the opposite.
