An amazing place high up on the hill, worth going just for the view. fascinating stories behind this chateau village.
History and Mythology collide, tales of Knights Templar and hidden treasure from the Crusades. The Magdalene cult and Dan Browns Da Vinci code. Visit the Chateau and Church and then take in the views from the cafe terrace.
If you've read 'Sepulchre' you should definitely visit Rennes-le-Chateau to discover the truth behind the story (and some fantastic scenery).
Beautiful views, very well known as the holy grail is said to be hidden here! Castle & church to wander round, lots of history.
