Rennes le chateau, Rennes-le-Chateau

(4.1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
World-renowned as the center of various conspiracy theories, hilltop Rennes le chateau is a village that attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. The predominantly rural area has a rich history, as evidenced by its castles, cathedrals, vineyards, and museums. This picturesque countryside spot rose to fame thanks to the popularity of Dan Brown's mystery "The Da Vinci Code." The book has ties to Father Bérenger Saunière, a local 19th-century priest and subject of many claims and stories that surfaced in the 1950s.
