Built in 1127, Château de Douzens was home to the all-powerful Knights Templar during the Middle Ages. Although never officially identified, local legend has it that Château de Douzens is one of these former Templar Houses and therefore potentially the site of buried Templar treasure – so much so that Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler sent a search team to the area, headed by Otto Rahn, the archaeologist who was the inspiration for the character of Indiana Jones. Some of the original aspects remain to this day.
