Rue Edmond Michelet
The best view of the Pyrenees from Lourdes. The Pic du Jer that overlooks the town can be recognised by its big cross, which is lit up at night.
The best panoramic view of the Pyrenees, out of Lourdes. The Pic du Jer that dominates the town is accessible by taking a century-old funicular railway, which will take you up toward the summit at an altitude of 900 metres in just a few minutes, on a very scenic journey.
Once you've arrived at the upper station, a walking trail takes you to the summit itself, where you will discover a unique panoramic viewpoint stretching out over Lourdes, Tarbes, Pau, the ArgelèsGazost valley and the summits of the Pyrenees.
You enjoy mountain biking, hiking or you'd just like to admire Lourdes from a new vantage point? Then you'll love discovering the Pic du Jer. It offers lots of outdoor activities, and in its bar - restaurant you can find food and refreshments at any time of the day.
