The world is full of mysterious places, and we do not refer only to those corners in which strange and incomprehensible phenomena occur, but to some prehistoric sites surrounded by legends and enigmas since archaeologists and historians have not been able to explain their origin, function or form of construction.
Today, we want to show you 10 of the most mysterious places in the world. As you can imagine, it has been hard for us to make this selection. In fact, we are aware that many enigmatic corners are missing. Of course, those that we show below deserve to be on this list.
Easter Island, Chile
Rapa Nui, better known as Easter Island, an island in Chile found in Polynesia. It is one of the primary tourist destinations in the country, both for its natural beauty and for the mysterious ancestral culture of the Rapanui ethnic group. If there is something that stands out of the place are the Moai statues.
Stonehenge, a megalithic monument of the 20th century! Located near Amesbury, in the English county of Wiltshire! One of the great enigmas that surround this place and no proper explanation about the rock setting. It is believed that it was used as a religious temple, funerary monument or astronomical observatory.
Skara Brae, Scotland
Another mysterious place we can find in northern Europe is Skara Brae, a Neolithic settlement located in the Orkney Islands, Scotland. Considered as the best preserved Neolithic town in Europe, it surprises with its sophistication and the mysterious disappearance of its inhabitants.
The Valley of Death, United States
From Scotland, we moved to the United States to tell you about the Death Valley of California, an inhospitable area in which a bizarre phenomenon occurs: the rocks move by themselves.
Area 51, United States
We continue in the United States to tell you about the famous Area 51, a remote area in the Nevada desert that has been linked on multiple occasions with extraterrestrial sightings, spacecraft and conspiracy theories. The objective of this secret base of the US government is unknown, although it is believed that investigations and tests of advanced armaments and experimental aircraft are carried out.
Nazca Lines, Peru
Undoubtedly, one of the most mysterious places in the world is Las Pampas de Jumana, located in the Nazca desert, between the towns of Nazca and Palpa. Here we can find some incredible lines traced by the Nazca culture that range from simple figures to other zoomorphic, pytomorphic and geometric. Many theories explain the origin and function of these lines. Even, some assurances that were made by aliens!
Machu Picchu, Peru
Also in Peru, we find Machu Picchu, the leading tourist destination of the country. It is an old Andean town built before the fifteenth century. Many mysteries surround this impressive monument: its discovery, its name, its usefulness, the construction method used.
Triangle of Bermuda, Atlantic Ocean
The Triangle of Bermuda, a geographic area that forms an equilateral triangle that is located in the Atlantic Ocean, specifically between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami, could not be missing from this list. This area is known for the number of disappearances of ships and planes that have occurred over the years, although it is true that some investigations ensure that there are no more disappearances here than in other places.
We also want to tell you about Petra, an important archaeological site in Jordan. It is a city carved and sculpted in stone. Many historians wonder why they decided to inhabit this place knowing that it is a dry and arid area. Also, they do not understand how they could make these large works of art.
The Zone of Silence, Mexico

Finally, we want to talk about the Zone of Silence, an area located in the central part of the Mapimí, in Mexico. Its name comes from the widespread belief that radio waves cannot normally be transmitted. This myth goes back to the year 1970 when a missile with radioactive elements fell in the area. Since then, they also talk about mutations and extraterrestrial visits.
