    Hi,

    It is true that the connection from Barcelona to Lourdes takes about 7 hours and involves changing trains in Narbonne and then Toulouse along the way.

    The train from Barcelona to Narbonne is a high-speed train called the France-Spain High Speed train.

    On the segment from Narbonne to Toulouse, there are high-speed TGV trains, but they do not fit into the fastest connection for a longer connection from Barcelona to Lourdes. For the fastest connection from Barcelona to Lourdes, the trains for the segments from Narbonne to Toulouse and Toulouse to Lourdes are Intercités trains.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. For a trip from Barcelona to Lourdes, you would just piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Barcelona to Narbonne, another search for connecting trains from Narbonne to Toulouse, and then another search for connecting trains from Toulouse to Lourdes.

    Generally, the France-Spain High Speed from Barcelona to Narbonne can be booked within 120 days of an intended departure date, while the trains between Narbonne and Lourdes can only be booked within 90 days of an intended departure date.
