The Guide Photo of the Week - July 12 1999

Rennes le Chateau, Aude

Rennes-Le-Chateau, (and the holy grail) near Limoux, Aude, Languedoc

Drive into the fantastic, as you wander around this mysterious village near Limoux. Read about the Reverend Saunière, who became suddenly rich, apparently because of some hidden treasure. A secret hoard that could include the Holy Grail, - even some suppose the tomb of Christ. A secret bound in cryptic languages, paintings by Poussin, the geometric placing of mountains, churches, castles and buildings. Are you enchanted?!
