Video: Flying over Lourdes

Daniel Esparza - published on 07/03/17

Discover the magnificent Marian sanctuary, with a little help from a drone.

From the Piedmont of the French Pyrenees comes this video, in which the basilica, the grotto and the surroundings of one of the most visited Marian sanctuaries of the world appear before our eyes as perhaps we could never have seen them, were it not for the help of our new flying friends. Yet another reason to, maybe, get a drone this year!
