Peregrinaje a Lourdes, Francia. Pilgrimage to Lourdes. #GlobalStoryMaps

Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.

[ESP] En el verano de 2016 viajamos a Francia. Veníamos de un recorrido por la República Checa, Polonia, Alemania, Holanda y Bélgica. Después de visitar Paris, nos fuimos a Lourdes en tren. Una huelga de trenes hizo que el último trayecto lo hiciéramos en bus. Este paró en siete pueblos, incluyendo a Tarbes, antes de llegar a medianoche a Lourdes.

Al no encontrar un taxi, caminamos por las solitarias calles hasta el hotel. El silencio y soledad eran absolutos. De pronto, escuchamos ruidos de muchas personas que venían en dirección contraria hacia nosotros. Sorprendidos, vimos a una multitud aproximarse a nosotros. Todos ellos estaban saliendo de la misa de medianoche en la Gruta de la Virgen de Lourdes.

Este Story Map resume gráficamente nuestra visita a los diferentes sitios prominentes de Lourdes dedicados a la Virgen y a las apariciones.

[ENG] In the summer of 2016 we traveled to France. We came from a tour of the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Holland and Belgium. After visiting Paris, we went to Lourdes by train. A train strike caused us to do the last trip by bus. It stopped at seven towns, including Tarbes, before reaching Lourdes at midnight.

Unable to find a taxi, we walked the lonely streets to the hotel. The silence and solitude were absolute. Suddenly, we heard noises from many people coming in the opposite direction towards us. Surprised, we saw a crowd approach us. All of them were leaving the midnight mass in the Grotto of the Virgin of Lourdes.
