She spent 10 years of her childhood in that mill. You can still see the bedroom where Bernadette was born.

Just a most peaceful place to visit if only once in in a life time. Very spiritual and uplifting. I was amazed to see and meet people who were non Christian, or of no particular faith - if any ! I found that all very strange indeed! Something extraordinarily!
The "Maison Paternelle" keeps artefacts from the life of St Bernadette that are not referenced elsewhere, referring to her wider family. It seems as though this site is not really recognised on the "official" trail, but it is well worth a visit for the illustrations and information. The preserved rooms with furniture give a good indication of the style of living at the time of St Bernadette. There are some photos that are not seen elsewhere.
Our visit to St. Bernadette's childhood home on 23 June 2018 was arranged by 206Tours that conduct Pilgrimages for Catholics. Of all the reviews posted, none mentioned that St. Bernadette's current heirs to the home live there and operate the gift shop to keep things going as a museum. The museum and gift shop is operated by St. Bernadette family members to this day, and you may not see them, but surely they are there. We had a wonderful visit to St. Bernadette's childhood home, and to the convent in Nevers, France where her body lay in chapel. Below are photos of the convent, the door of the gate that St. Bernadette walked through to enter the convent, which is the same doors used in the movie, and her body in chapel at Nevers where she served as a nun and died there on 16 April 1879. There are photos in this post that I did not submit, do not know how tbey got in my post, i.e., the car. Why is a car in my post and I cannot delete it? Is this something Google think is funny? Please remove the kadjar car, and whatever is to the right of it. Google.
A good place to visit for peaceful reflection.
give you a view of the time she was still alive
