Parroquia Nuestra Señora de Lourdes

Parroquia Nuestra Señora de Lourdes is located in the east of the historic center of Merida and is a comparatively younger church in Mérida, which is noticeable at first glance by the architecture.


It differs significantly from the usually simple facades of the colonial churches and the stained glass windows. Currently, the church is painted quite striking beige and pink. Construction began at the end of the nineteenth century, on February 11, 1889, and the completion or inauguration was on February 9, 1908.


The small church consists of three naves with a chancel, presbytery, sacristy and a large hall. The ceiling was made of wood. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes.


On one side of the church is a replica of the grotto Lourdes where the Virgin Mary appeared (in Lourdes, France). The grotto was completed in 1952 and blessed by Archbishop Dr. Fernando Ruiz Solórzano. Inside there is a large picture of Our Lady of Lourdes and an altar.


You can also find Parroquia Nuestra Señora de Lourdes on Facebook and on Instagram.


Who was Our Lady of Lourdes?


Our Lady of Lourdes is another title of the Virgin Mary. She is venerated under this title by the Roman Catholic Church because of her apparitions in Lourdes, France. Her first apparition was on February 11, 1858, when she spoke to the 14-year-old girl Bernadette Soubirous.
