Discover controversial theories and local curiosities at Musee Berenger Sauniere, which draws scores of visitors with its intrigue. It is rumored that Father Berenger Sauniere found secret artifacts or documents after he came to the church of Rennes le Château in 1885. These documents are said to point to an elaborate alternative history of the Christian religion that revolves around the existence of a bloodline of Jesus Christ, and the societies that were formed to hide the truth and protect his descendants. This museum displays a range of significant objects related to the site, from the prehistoric dinosaur eggs that were found here to documentation that has been interpreted as evidence of a global conspiracy. The rise of popular literary depictions of this site, its architecture, and its artifacts makes it one of the most famous tourist destinations in France.

Waste of time. Church and museum and tower were all closed. They apparently reopen February 23rd. However, I had to ask several people before I was told this little nugget of information. Don't waste your time or money coming here, nothing online said the dates of closure, rude and unfriendedly townspeople. Only good thing was the cats.
