One of the most exciting and relaxing things that one could ever do is to travel. Visiting places that are rare and decorated with historical artifacts can be both entertaining and enlightening. A lot of people find themselves during travels and the chance to meet people from a totally different world is also inviting. However, do you know that there are amazing locations that you may not be allowed to visit. Yes, there are places that only a few persons in the world can go to, and here are a number of them.
Vatican Secret Archives
This library would have been one of them most interesting places to visit, especially to people who are thirsty for knowledge but it has restricted access. It contains a number of the world’s oldest books, even single paged books that were written with papyrus and reeds. The Vatican library holds a lot of important documents that contain important information about people, nations and even businesses. This is why it is restricted to just a few people who are allowed to take short, limited tours through some parts of the facility. These outsiders are considered to be highly qualified before they can be allowed the access into the archives. The first time anyone would ever gain access, apart from those who live and work there, is in 1881. The Pope Leo XIII had chosen some specific people to have a tour through the facility, but not to stay there for long. It is said to be one of the most forbidden locations in the whole world.
North Sentinel Island, India
There is a chain of islands called the North Sentinel Island in India that you would love to go to, but would be hurt to find out that you are not allowed to come there. The islands are also called Andaman, and it is one of the places with the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen. The people of North Sentinel Island are hostile towards visitors, regardless of who you are and why you came there. These people are called the Sentinelese, and they prefer to be alone on their Island80. The series of gory experiences that people have when they visit the islands has made the government of India place an embargo on any kind of visitation to the place.
Someone tried to break the law in 2018, and he went there in the name of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. His name was John Allen Chau, and he was killed mercilessly before he could even deliver the message because they considered him to be a threat.
Lascaux Cave, France
Yes, there is also a place in the highly visited France that is restricted from outsiders. The place is called the Lascaux Cave, and it is located in the southwestern part of the French country. This cave can be found in a village called Montignac, and it contains most of the world’s most famous cave paintings, but people are not allowed to visit the place. The paintings are up to 600 different images, and they are mostly paintings of animals. They are said to have been painted about 17,000 years ago. Visitation was restricted when the cave began to grow fungi rapidly because too many people were coming there. So, to preserve the ancient monument, only one person is allowed to enter the cave every week, and he is not allowed to stay for long.
