If you thought you could travel anywhere in the world, it means that you are not aware of the fact that there are certain locations on Europe where we, the ordinary people, are not allowed to visit.
Vatican Secret Archives – Italy
Do not think you can go beyond the Vatican archives? Only a few elite members of the Vatican Society have access to this library.
The Vatican Secret Archives is the central repository for all of the acts promulgated by the Holy See. The Pope, as Sovereign of Vatican City, owns the archives until his death or resignation, with ownership passing to his successor.
The archives also contain the state papers, correspondence, papal account books, and many other documents accumulated over the centuries. In the 17th century, the Secret Archives were separated from the Vatican Library, where scholars had some very limited access to them. The archives remained closed to outsiders until the late 19th century. More than a thousand of whom now examine some of its documents each year.
It contains books and secret notes about Satan’s contact with humans, alien forms of life, and ancient Mayan codes.

Lascaux Cave – France
It’s a mysterious cave located in France, which is believed to be more than 20,000 years old. The place has been banned from public access since 1963.
Lascaux Cave is a rock shelter in the Dordogne Valley of France with fabulous cave paintings, painted over 15,000 years ago. Although it is no longer open to the public.
Lascaux Cave is one of the world’s great treasures. Exploration of its vast interior revealed about six hundred paintings and almost 1,500 engravings. The subject matter of the cave paintings and engravings reflect the climate of the time of their painting.
Unlike older caves which contain mammoths and wooly rhinoceros, the paintings in Lascaux are birds and bison and deer and aurochs and horses. The cave also features hundreds of “signs”, quadrilateral shapes and dots and other patterns we’ll surely never decipher. Colors in the cave are blacks and yellows, reds and whites, and were produced from charcoal and manganese and ocher and iron oxides.
