Air France Lourdes Vintage Travel Poster

Air France Lourdes Vintage Travel Poster

A vintage French travel poster promoting air travel to Lourdes, France to visit Our Lady of Lourdes in the Grotto.  The Blessed Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to Bernadette Soubirous on a total of eighteen occasions at Lourdes. Lourdes has become a major place of Roman Catholic pilgrimage and of miraculous healing. The 150th Jubilee of the first apparition took place on 11 February 2008 with an outdoor Mass attended by approximately 45,000 pilgrims.  Today Lourdes has a population of around 15,000, but it is able to take in some 5,000,000 pilgrims and tourists every season.  Edited from Wikipedia.
