Notre Dame de Lourdes church was built in the basement of a building in 1980, in the 20e arrondissement of Paris.  The church is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes and to her apparitions in 1858.  Outside the church we can see a wide kaleidoscope-style stained-glass of the Virgin Mary by Eric Bonte (1998).

In the narthex, there is a polychrome statue of Our Lady of Lourdes close to a little piece of stone and earth from the Lourdes' cave.

Inside the church, on the right side, there are several modern stained-glass windows illustrating the requests of the Virgin to Bernadette.  A wonderfully moving bas-relief of Notre Dame de Lourdes by G. Candelier (1988), attracts special devotion.

The thematic of water, which can already be seen in the stained-glass, is obvious on the altar too, where a relic of Ste. Bernadette is kept.
