Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes

Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes


In the First World War, the village of Rosières was put to the torch and the Germans murdered numerous civilians. The residents of Vaux-lez-Rosières, the former name for Vaux-sur-Sûre, prayed to the Blessed Virgin Mary for her protection against such a massacre. Their prayers being heard, they decided to build a lasting monument in honour of the Holy Mother. In January 1916, Abbé Jacques decided that this project should take the form of a partial reconstruction of the grotto at Lourdes. Fourteen stations with statues in bronze were laid out around the grotto in order to create a Way of the Cross.

After visiting the grotto, head for Sûre and then Cobreville to discover these pretty villages on your way to Remoiville.
