Center of the Assumption

Centre Assomption de LourdesThe Center of the Assumption belongs to the nuns for over 125 years. A Community of 10 Sisters lives year-round the Center.


The Center is on an exceptional site: facing the sanctuaries and overlooking the mountains. Less than 10 minutes from the center, you can reach the sanctuaries thanks to our private path. A large park of 2 ha surrounds the House and each one can relax and enjoy the nature with a view on the Pyrenees, the Grotto and the town of Lourdes.
