Salza

Salza churchSalza is a tiny village, some 35 kilometres from Rennes-le-Château. It litterally lies at the end of a narrow mountain road. There are perhaps 10 houses and a small church. The interesting thing about the church is that it has an upside-down wooden pentacle over the front porch. Inside the church looks just like many of the other old chapels in the area. It makes one wonder what the people who built this church wanted to say.

Salza churchIs it perhaps a reference to any sacred geometry in the surrounding landscape or is there another perhaps more mundane meaning? If anyone has an idea, I’d be very interested to hear it so don’t hesitate to post your comments.

  1. I visited this site in late 1996 with Clive Prince. It was SO eerie, you have no idea, and the fact it was close to sunset, didn’t help. The most bizarre was the atmosphere inside; and near the altar, there was a book that was definitely not part of what Christians say during mass. Once having noticed that, we decided to leave.
    I went back a few years ago, and indeed, the “atmosphere” has cleared.

  2. Well, I can’t read what’s written there, so all I can say is, yes, it looks like a book – and so did the other one ;-)
    All I can tell you is that 2 years ago, the book wasn’t there any longer…

    Also, in 1996, there was something “unconventional” that was used as a page marker…
