Rennes-le-Chateau ©
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. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cimetiere and Eglise Saint-Andre. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rennes-le-Chateau: Chateau de Termes (in Termes), Galerie d'art Casa Ilicia (in Eus) and Abbey of Saint-Hilaire (in Saint-Hilaire). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Musee Berenger Sauniere, don't miss a visit to Rennes le chateau, cruise along Gorges de la Pierre-Lys, and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Sainte-Marie-Madeleine.
