About this journey

A miraculous place to seek solace

A miraculous place to seek solace Some destinations have an allure all its own. And no where else in the world can a city claim a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary, not once – but 18 times. It is this miraculous feat that brings the city of Lourdes millions of visitors. Lourdes is nestled in a valley in the southwestern part of the Hautes-Pyrénées. Many catholics pay homage to this revered city, but you certainly do not have to be catholic to appreciate all that this mysterious city has to offer. You can get to Lourdes by train from Paris in just over 5½ hours. Get a France Rail Pass and you can spend time in Lourdes and surrounding cities. On February 11, 1858, a 14 year-old shepherd girl named Bernadette Soubirous came in contact with the Virgin Mary through a vision. The Virgin had revealed herself to Bernadette not once, but a total of 18 times in the niche of a cave. Bernadette was unaware of who the woman was until March 25, 1858, when that the Virgin said to Bernadette "I am the Immaculate Conception." It is said that Mary commanded Bernadette to "Go drink at the spring and wash there." As there was no flowing water to be found, Bernadette scraped the earth away. As she dug, a small puddle appeared before her, the puddle began to flow. The next day, a stream flowed where the puddle began and this same stream still flows today. Learn more about Lourdes

What’s old is new again

What’s old is new again Orléans, the capital of the Loiret region in the heart of the Loire Valley, is just an hour away from Paris by train. Surrounded by chateaux and wineries, it's the picture of elegance and residents with savoir-faire. Back in 1429, a local peasant girl named Joan of Arc, took this gut instinct “to know what's right” and helps her country. Thanks to "Divine guidance," Joan of Arc led the French army to several victories during the Hundred Years' War, leading to the coronation of King Charles VII. Ultimately captured by the Burgundians and sold to the English, she was tried by an ecclesiastical court and burned at the stake at the ripe age of 19. Today, this Maid of Orléans is considered a national heroine of France and is a catholic saint. Visitors to Orléans can find reminders of Joan everywhere, including the Gothic Cathédrale Ste-Croix, where two golden leopards protect her pedestal. One of the biggest churches in France, the Huguenots burned it in 1568. The Rebuilding began with Henry IV in 1601 and continued all the way to 1829. Want to see how the young maid lived ? Although a scale reproduction (the original was destroyed by fire in 1940), the Joan of Arc museum reconstructs her life story and dedicates an entire floor to the yearly celebration the city holds every May 8th. The battling history of Orléans continued as World War II swept through France. The city was badly damaged, however the historic old town was largely unharmed. The central feature of Orléans old town is the spacious Place du Martroi. In the sixth century there was a cemetery here, hence the name Martroi (originally Martyretum). The 1855 equestrian statue of Joan of Arc is by Foyatier. Learn more about Orleans
