The French Priest’s Mystery Treasure That Inspired The Da Vinci Code | Myth Hunters

History Documentaries

Rennes-le-Château, a small village in France with a population of less than 100, was made famous by the village priest Bérenger Saunière. A priest who grew up in poverty, but seemingly stumbled upon unbelievable wealth, so much so that he completely redecorated his church, as well as built himself a house with that money. The origin of Saunière’s money remains unknown to this day, though there are multiple theories – some more reliable than others – which has led to years of treasure hunters visiting the small French village.
