Lourdes’ imposing castle stands on a sheer hill just behind the town. There’s been a stronghold here since Roman times, but the present building combines a medieval keep with fortifications added during the 17th and 18th centuries. Since the 1920s, the castle has housed the Musée Pyrénéen , which displays local artefacts and folk art.

A free lift takes you up to the castle from rue Baron Duprat.
