Rennes-le-Chateau — 1 night

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. Tour Magdala has been added to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 13th (Mon): explore the historical opulence of Rennes le chateau, then pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, then steep yourself in history at Musee Berenger Sauniere, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Tour Magdala. On your second day here, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Andre, make a trip to Abbaye d'Alet les Bains, and then don't miss a visit to Cimetiere.
