NotesThis chapel is one of the most unique Grottoes of Lourdes in existence. The beautiful grille door at its entrance and the exquisite grille of wrought iron which separates the chapel are considered by connoisseurs as remarkable pieces of workmanship. The symbols painted upon the ceilings are taken from the Litany of the Blessed Virgin.
