Important sites to visit near Eterle

Visit the surroundings of the Eterle!

You don't necessarily want to do activities but more to visit? There are plenty of things to do near the Eterle, less than an hour away by car.

For example, are you looking for a gite in Lourdes to visit this historic city full of symbols? Of course, we know that there are plenty of lodgings available in Lourdes, but it's a shame to be limited to this city only.

As a result, by sleeping at the Eterle, you will only be 25 minutes by car from the Marian City (the other name given to Lourdes) which is much more than a place of pilgrimage.

Since the apparition of the Virgin Mary to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858, every year, 6 million tourists from all over the world (including 67% foreigners!) come to meditate and recollect in Lourdes, the second city after Paris in terms of hotel capacity.

It is an attractive city with a dense and diversified economic structure, but where we find that it is a pity to stay and to be ""locked up"" in religion matters. 

Nevertheless, for the past 10 years, Lourdes has taken into account the new expectations of its passing pilgrims.

People are also there now to explore the region and make the city a real tourist expedition, and not just a pilgrimage.

The department 65 (Hautes Pyrénées) has so much more to offer than Lourdes! It therefore makes sense to stay at the Eterle if you plan to visit this world-famous city.
