The Eglise Ste. Marie-Madeleine (Church of St. Mary-Magdalenen) holds a central position in the stories of Rennes-le-Château and its priest Abbé Bérenger Saunière. It was in this church he did his first discoveries. Many believe that he used part of his fortune to hide clues to his treasure and/or secret in the new gaudy decoration of his church that he installed between 1887 and 1897.
