The sanctuary A strong and important pilgrimage's location

Each year thousands of people from all over the world come on pilgrimage to Nevers to pray beside Saint Bernadette.

« Every human being is precious in the eyes of God ».

A team of employees and volunteers (lay people, priests, Sisters of Charity of Nevers), will welcome you to this Sanctuary and help you during your stay..
