  • It is the former prison where St. Bernadette and her family lived when she saw the apparitions. Basically just a room but you can imagine how hard life was for St. Bernadette and her family living...

  • This should be visited through the Info center to be able to have the full real story. It forms part of Bernadette’s life when she was young.

  • This is a small museum showing the very small single room where St. Bernadette lived at one time with three siblings and her parents. The 'hood' she wore and her wooden shoes are also on display. It doesn't take long to see but it's interesting.

Basically just a room but you can imagine how hard life was for St. Bernadette and her family living here. Entrance is free and the line to get in may be long (and could get noisy) depending on whether you will be catching the tail end of a tour group.
