  • The incorrupt body of St. Bernadette (Soubirous) of Lourdes is on display here. I cannot say anything more. If you are within 100 km, go! 
  • The whole town and beautiful, but the most special and see the body of St. Bernadette. Very exciting time!

  • Must visit if you go through Nevers. Downtown to two steps from the Roger Salengro Park, come see the hunting of St. Bernadette. It's free. If many Splendors are in Lourdes, here she is humbly. It is edifying to see through his glass coffin. The Museum tells you his life with a few personal belongings. Really it's a place where up dry not indifferent. See whatever your religion.
