A French Gendarme controls on December 19, 2012 the access to the southwestern village of Bugarach near the 1,231 meter high peak of Bugarach, one of the few places on Earth some believe will be spared when the world ends on December 21, the end of an era that lasted over 5,000 years, according to the Mayan 'Long Count' calendar. French authorities have pleaded with New Age fanatics, sightseers and media crews not to converge on the tiny village.
