Rennes le Château (Aude - France) a village in south France near the Pyrenees Mountains, where Father Berenger Saunière (1852-1917), whose last name is borrowed in The Da Vinci Code, became a priest in 1885.

The mythology created in the 1950s by the anti-Semite Pierre Plantard about this priest and the Priory of Sion became the background for Dan Brown's fiction story The Da Vinci Code.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown has created an invasion of tourists to Rosslyn Chapel. The movie based on the book was making some of the scenes at the chapel and several other film crews have been doing work here as you can see in the panorama, which was made at the time of a visit by an American film documentary crew.
