I've been looking through old photographs and cleaning them with some nifty software. Amongst those rummaged through I've found a few from when I visited Rennes-Le-Chateau a few years back. Those who've played certain games will recognise the name and its significance. Anyway, here's one of the pics with my son in the foreground. It was about 8 years ago at a guess.
The village was not one bit commercialised despite the fact that the book 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' mentions the story of Berenger Sauniere in some detail. Actually, Mr Bagent, one of the co-authors, was in the Sauniere orchard garden at the time doing some very relaxed and casual book signing.
Anyone recognise this building?
We went in it and up onto the roof terrace where, if you remember, we used the binoculars to view Le SR and surrounds.
In fact we could go in almost everywhere that rang a bell from the game concerning Sauniere and reading the history of the place was an absorbing experience.
It was a wonderful, spine tingling sensation visiting there as GK3 is one of my favourite games.
