5. Pic du Jer Funicular

Located at 951 metres above the city of Lourdes is Pic du Jer. Recognisable by the distinctive big cross which is lit up at night, the mountain offers panoramic views of the city and surrounds and is accessible by funicular which has been in operation since the early 1900’s. The funicular transports passengers up to the 950m high summit along the 1,100 m rail line on a slope varying from 27° to 56°, passing through through two tunnels and over a viaduct. The summit is also accessible by a well trodden hiking trail. Pic du Jer is just 15 minutes drive from Le Belvedere.
