The Basilica of the Rosary is one of several #placestopray at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes. It was built to replace the original chapel on the site of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary. Consecrated in 1901, it is dedicated to the rosary because St. Bernadette described Mary as holding a rosary in her hand. The sanctuary contains 15 Chapels of the Mysteries, which are decorated with #mosaics depicting the 5 joyous, 5 sorrowful, and 5 glorious mysteries of the rosary. Highlighted here is the chapel of The Agony of Jesus in the Garden.
