The Cave of Lourdes is an astonishing structure located in Puerto Deseado, province of Santa Cruz (Argentina). It's a majestic sanctuary in Cañadón de las Bandurrias, originated in Tellier spot that fows into Ría de Deseado. That's where Laura Schneider went this time. On her blog, she shares the experience of her journey:

No tenía conocimiento de la Gruta de Lourdes hasta que viajé a Puerto Deseado, un lugar encerrado entre paredones de roca rodeado del silencio de la naturaleza o quizás del sonido que nos da la soledad y la fe. Miles y miles de personas visitan este lugar, tan alejado pero tan bello como natural. Mas alla de las peregrinaciones que se realizan, es un lindo lugar para recorrer sin necesidad de peregrinar.

I wasn't even aware of the Cave of Lourdes until I went to Puerto Deseado, a place between rock walls surrounded by the silence of nature or maybe the sound that solitude and faith provide us. Thousands and thousands of people visit this place, so far away, but as beauty as natural. Beyond the pilgrimage there, it's a beautiful location to be tour without having to go on a pilgrimage.
