Easter Island is definitely a pretty mysterious place.

Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, never has birds flying above it. Spooky.

Also, Pendragon Castle, the seat of Uther Pendragon (father of King Arthur) and place of his poisoning, and allegedly his ghost, is a particularly eerie place of an evening.

Do Cemeteries count? Pere LaChaise was interesting, and Highgate in London was downright spooky - there are graves way, way out buried under centuries of overgrowth. Some of the D-Day beaches were also pretty mysterious - especially because they still had the German bunkers half-buried underground. It's odd and humbling to stand there in the sunshine and imagine what it must have been like.

Oh - and the Catacombs in Paris.

I found Le Digue, Seychelles to be pretty mysterious in a slightly remote kind of way. Zoom

Chacarita cemetery in Buenos Aires, especially the modern, 10-storey underground tombs... maybe not mysterious, definitely very spooky.

A place few eyes have seen: The inside of the Kaaba in Mecca.

The Kaaba is actually a house, it has a door high up in the wall. Some old keys to that door are being kept at the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. The Kaaba used to be opened once a year in a ceremony, I don't know whether they still do it.

So a lot of people see the Kaaba, more than one million pigrims every year - but only a selected handful have seen the inside. Mysterious? You bet!
