Places You Can Not Visit

Below are places throughout the world that you can't visit for one reason or another.

1.Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean

4.Vatican Secret Archives

The Vatican Secret Archives are the central repository for all of the Pope's actions in Vatican City. Until he dies or resigns, he controls the archives, which then pass to his successor.

7.Poveglia Island

Poveglia was used as a quarantine station for sick travelers in the late 1800s, and it became a mental hospital in 1922. During those years, it is suspected that hospitalized patients were experimented on, lobotomized, and abused. The hospital was closed in 1968, and the island was abandoned and closed permanently soon after. Since the Italian government plans to sell the estate to the highest bidder, it is now a restricted area. So far, no one has expressed an interest in purchasing the land.

8.Ise Grand Shrine, Japan

Only royal priests and priestesses are permitted to enter the temple, which has been in existence since 4BC. In keeping with the Shinto concept of death and rebirth, the shrine is demolished and reconstructed every 20 years.

9.North Brother Island New York

Until 1885, when Riverside Hospital moved in to treat small pox patients and those who needed to be quarantined, the northernmost of the islands were uninhabited. Mary Mallon, also known as Typhoid Mary, was imprisoned on the island for more than two decades before dying in 1938. Shortly after, the hospital was forced to close. The island is reportedly deserted and off-limits to the public, serving as a bird sanctuary for herons and other wading shorebirds.
