On 11 February 1858, whilst collecting firewood, a 14 year old local girl Bernadette Soubirous saw a vision of a lady in the Grotto of Massabielle.

Bernadette asked the apparition who she was and the lady replied on the 16th Apparition 'I am the Immaculate Conception.'

Our Blessed Lady appeared a total of 18 times to Bernadette during the Lourdes Apparitions.

Today Lourdes has a population of around 15,000 but welcomes over 5,000,000 pilgrims every year who visit to bathe in the Lourdes water, take part in the Blessed Sacrament procession and torchlight procession and follow in the footsteps of St. Bernadette.
