These circles appear on old aerial photographs in and closely around the village of Rennes-le-Château.

Pay attention to the tree lines and the positioning of the buildings. The circles could be too close to perfection to be natural.

To do

  • Are they men made or natural?
  • What is or was their purpose?
  • When were they formed?
  • Are they marked on any maps?
  • Are they marked on the ground?
  • Are they mentioned in any research papers, field studies, manuscripts?
  • Find previous owners of the marked areas.
