Worth a visit if you're passing, but not worth a special trip or detour as it takes less than 10 minutes to look around.

It is a worthwhile stop, but unless you are with a tour group, I'd recommend having some French language skills; I don't. Still, one can feel the holiness of St. Bernadette through her family photos and belongings.

Definitely one should visit this place when you go to Lourdes. It's only 10mins from the Church which is guided by a blue line. The house is well preserved. Its precisely drawing the picture how her life was in that era.

This is the house where Bernardette was born and lived her ealry years of life. Most of it is still in its origing. One can easily experience the hard life and simplicity these people used to live in those days

An interesting historical attraction when looking deeper at St Bernadettes life. A nice walk and unique architecture. The building almost looks like a movie set... The roof tiles and stone walls make the mill an interesting place.
