Our Lady of Lourdes

Pilgrims travelling to Medjugorje via Split in Croatia will pass through the beautiful town of Makarska where there is a shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. It was founded by a local bishop in 1908 after he saw similarities between the cave and landscape with those of the shrine at Lourdes in France where the Blessed Virgin appeared to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.

Pilgrims often stop off at the Makarska shrine to celebrate Mass and thank Our Lady for their pilgrimage to Medjugorje.
