Those looking to participate in prayer and devotion can join in the Stations of the Cross and hear the Rosary said in the Grotto at 2.30pm daily.

Pilgrims can also look forward to the Eucharistic Procession, also known as the Procession of the Sick, each evening around the Sanctuary area or part take in an escorted tour. With a choice of a one or three day pilgrimage, and guided tours of the Sanctuary, there’s something for each visitor to explore and enjoy. Beyond the religious experience, there is plenty of history and nature to uncover such as Chateau fort de Lourdes, the fortified castle and botanical gardens, or take in the stunning 360 degree views of the Pyrenees from the observatory.

Paul Hackett, CEO of Click&Go, said, “We’re excited to be adding Lourdes to our wide range of city break destinations. With such an astounding history of visitor numbers, we hope the addition of this package will make the pilgrimage much easier and cost effective for those looking to travel.”

Hackett continued, “Lourdes is such a unique destination, particularly considering the healing and comfort it offers so many. Click&Go hope that even more Irish visitors can experience it’s incredible appeal next year.”

Mano pirmieji įspūdžiai Niujorke, Beacon viešbutyje – Silvija Travel Tips

Mano pirmieji įspūdžiai Niujorke prasidėjo viesbutyje “Beacon”.
Šis viešbutis įsikūręs Manheteno viršutinėje vakarinėje dalyje, visai šalia Niujorko Centrinio parko. Netoli viešbučio išsidėstę tokie svarbūs statiniai kaip Amerikos gamtos istorijos muziejus,
“Lincoln Center Plaza” ir “Beacon” teatras. Kelios minutės nuo viešbučio – ir jūs jau požeminėje Metro stotyje, iš kur greitai galima pasiekti Niujorko miesto centrinę dalį.

Viešbutyje gali pasijusti lyg namie- puikūs kambariai ir apartamentai su virtuvėlėmis, turinčiomis visą būtiną įrangą maisto gamybai. Kambariuose didžiuliai plokščiaekraniai televizoriai ir belaidis internetas. Puikus Niujorko vaizdas atsiveria žiūrint pro langą. Tiesiog būdamas kambaryje tu gali grožėtis saulėlydžiu tarp didmiesčio dangoraižių.

Viešbutyje yra verslo centras susitikimams, taip pat siūlomos skalbyklos paslaugos ir bagažo saugykla. Šalia vestibiulio yra rami ir patogi erdvė lankytis ar skaityti, ir atsipalaiduoti.
Viešbutis “Beacon” yra labai gerai vertinamas ne tik vietinių niujorkiečių , bet ir svečių iš viso pasaulio dėl labai patogios išsidėstymo vietos, dėl aukšto aptarnavimo lygio, dėl paslaugų suteikiamų svečiams. Į šį viešbutį visada norisi sugrįžti.
