Founded in 1446, the still functioning chapel has a long and interesting career, which culminated in the fame brought about by the publication of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. The book and subsequent film provided the infamy which resulted in a virtual flood of tourists and the therefore the money necessary to continue the much needed renovations.
The chapel also has supposed connections to the Knights Templar and the Freemasons and so the messages presented by all the interior works can be interpreted either in a Christian biblical way of in terms of the Templars and Masonry
There are many claims, suppositions and theories about Rosslyn all of which create an aura of intrigue and mystery, which is a wonderful place to visit even on a cold winter day.
