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.

Very interesting place to visit in Lourdes: this is the house where Bernadette Soubirous lived the ten first years of her saint life. It's very well preserved, with minor changes explicitly indicated. It's also the house where the father of Bernadette worked during those years,...More

If you are familiar with the story of Bernadette Soubirous you will enjoy this tour. Provides insight into the life and times. Beyond that not that inspirational.
