Multi-centre Shrines of France pilgrimages. Our multi centre Shrines of France pilgrimages will give you the opportunity to combine a visit to Lourdes, the world’s most famous Marian Shrine, with some of the most important French Shrines. You will commence your journey in Lourdes, a place of universal meeting and sharing, prayer and celebration of life, and then continue on to stunning Rocamadour, before arriving in Nevers - St. Bernadette's resting place. We then continue on to Paris and finish the pilgrimage in Lisieux, the Shrine of St. Therese.
