Our history: Religious shop in Lourdes since 1914

Palais du Rosaire : A Lourdes family story for more than a 100 years

A beautiful family adventure

Since 1914, Palais du Rosaire is a pioneer in the sale of religious objects in Lourdes.

This notorious 100-year-old institution continues to be a family business with the 4th generation. Our founder’s great-grandson, perpetuating with his family, this long-established tradition.

It all began early in the twentieth century, when our founder Joseph Du Serre Telmon, a Parisian tradesman, had during a pilgrimage in Lourdes the idea to create a shop near Our Lady’s shrine to give to pilgrims the opportunity to find candles and rosaries to support their prayers and strengthen their faith.

Ever since the early years, the shop has offered a broad range of items satisfying every taste and preference of pilgrims from all over the world.

In the 1920s, given the success of Palais du Rosaire located Boulevard de la Grotte, a second shop was opened Avenue Bernadette Soubirous. Later, in 1997, Palais du Rosaire broadened its offer with a third store, L’Esplanade 83 Boulevard de la Grotte.
