I’ve been to Rennes-le-Chateau, inside the church, and to Shugborough. Also visited Montsegur (bit of a climb but worth it). I think the two places are definitely linked, possibly to something that was sacred to the Albigensians and also to the Templars.

I too have climbed Montsegur and it was worth it ... the Albigensian (Cathar) are only indirectly linked (through Poussin) and the escapees did not go to Rennes-le-Chateau. The Treasure of R-le-C (King Dagobert’s Gold) however is linked to the Classical Monuments at Shugborough (Shepherds Monument Code), the nine stone effigies in Temple Church London, those in St Mary’s Church Aldworth (Aldworth Giants) and the Danse Macabre figures in Rosslyn Chapel.
