Rennes-le-Château is a small commune approximately 5 km south of Couiza, in the Aude department in Languedoc in southern France.This small French hilltop village is known internationally, and receives tens of thousands of visitors per year, because of various conspiracy theories, about an alleged buried treasure discovered by its 19th-century priest Bérenger Saunière, the precise nature of which is disputed by those who believe in its existence.HistoryMountains frame both ends of the region—the Cevennes to the northeast and the Pyrenees to the south. Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Tour Magdala. On the 3rd (Tue), step into the grandiose world of Chateau d'Arques, take in the dramatic scenery at Source Salee de la Sals, explore the historical opulence of Rennes le chateau, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, thenbrowse the exhibits of Musee Berenger Sauniere, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Tour Magdala. Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to Domaine Delmas, shop like a local with Au Rucher de Flora, thenget outside with Pech de Bugarach, and finally contemplate the long history of Pont Romain.
