  • Not far from the centre of Lourdes. We went up by Funiculare and walked down the hill. Great views, sunny day. We also had a delicious lunch at the local restaurant.

  • Expansive views from the top which can be reached from a mountain cable car. The staff of the cable car were great though I can't say the same of the restaurant staff on the top.
  • Lovely ride on an old fashion funicular!
