During the last fifteen years I took over 20.000 pictures. Of Rennes-le-Château and the area surrounding this hilltop village. Of other places in France, the Second Holy Country, places where Mary Magdalene is still "present".

Just as in the east, the west has also much to offer. So we better take two days. First to Esperaza, then the inner road to Fa and Rouvenac and from there to the castle of Puivert. The castle of the troubadours and courtly love. From Puivert to Belesta with the ND du Val d’Amour and its Black Madonna. Then south. We pass the strange Fontaine the Fontestorbes where the water rises and falls every half hour. But our main objective is Montsegur. The famous Cathar castle. An awesome sight. The village is also pretty. It has a museum and a lovely church with two Black Madonna’s.

In the east there is so much to be seen that we better take two days. We first go to Bugarach, then to the Col de Linas from where most people climb the Pech Bugarach and then on to Cubieres. It has a lovely little church. Here we turn south to the famous Gorges the Galamus. A spectacular road hacked out of the rocks in the nineteenth century. Halfway is the Hermitage de St Antoine with a church in a huge cave. Really spectacular. On to St Paul de Fenouillet in a broad valley stretching all the way to the Mediterranean. An area famous for its wines. Especially the Cotes de Roussillon, the Rivesaltes, the Banyuls and the Fitou wines.

First we take the road to Quillan. There is not much to be seen in Quillan, but there are wonderful shops and good restaurants. Then we can go east through he Gorges de Pierre Lys to Axat. From there we have several choices. A little further east to the Chateau Puilaurens. One of the best preserved Cathar castles. Nearby is the beautiful ND de Laval. Then, at St Paul de Fenouillet, we turn south. A side step to the aqueduct d’Ansignan and then to Sournia with its strange rock formations. Over the mountain to Prades, a big city. With south of Prades the Abbey of St Michel de Cuxa and further south, at he foot of the magic mountain de Canigou the abbey of St. Martin du Canigou.

First some impressions. Let it be known, if it is not already known, that I love to take people around. And that I love to tell them about the magic and mysteries of this beautiful, this Holy Land. And that I love to show them the most exotic and wonderful places in this country. Especially places with a high energy and places that are hard to find. And that I love to take pictures. Of the places where we go and of the people I am guiding.

I love to guide people around and show you this beautiful, mysterious area. This magical place. Let you experience at first hand the wonderful energies of this region.
The healing energy of La Source at Les Labadous. The energy of Mary Magdalene; creative, spiritual, so feminine. The energy of sacred mountains like the Pech Cardou and the Pech Bugarach. Show the rivers, sources and springs.
