Ash trees donated by the non-profit Fondazione Giorgio Tesi arrive in Lourdes

The ash trees donated by our association, the non-profit Fondazione Giorgio Tesi, have arrived at the Sanctuary of Lourdes, and have already been planted near the Grotto of the Apparitions. The new route will escort pilgrims on the path to one of the most compelling places of worship for the Christian faithful. The Grotto, access to which had been limited until now, will be opened again and restored as a place of devotion beginning Easter Sunday, 5 April 2015.
