Musical cubes. Some people claim the cubes, each with unique symbols carved on them, are a secret code or a sequence of musical notes. Chapel has long been rumored to be associated with the Knights Templar and Freemasons. Some people claim these carvings are maize, which was only in North America at the time and not known in Europe. They claim it's proof that the Templars were in North America before Columbus. The chapel was built 50 years before the Columbus voyage.
