Lourdes used to be a sleepy town going to the spas of Pyrenees. It became the battleground between Mirat and Charlemagne during the 8th century. According to legendary tales, there was an eagle that dropped a trout on Mirat's feet, which was believed to be a bad omen, that's why he surrendered to the Queen of the Sky. Mirat was converted to Christianity and changed his name to Lorus where the town derived its name.
