Day 8 (Thursday September 23rd)

In Lourdes, a small market town in the Midi-Pyrenees region in south western France which is particularly famous for the apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes, we were taken to a tour of the Old Lourdes on the hill in the footsteps of St Bernadette. We had the opportunity to join the Blessed Sacrament and  the candle light processions in the evening.

Day 9 (Friday September 24th)

We departed Lourdes early in the morning to Burgos, a city in northern Spain on a high plateau which is rich in ancient churches and convents. It is also known as the 'Land of Castles'. We visited the Gothic Cathedral at Burgos.
