A general view of the London Charterhouse in Smithfield on January 27, 2017 in London, England. The London Charterhouse dates back to the 14th century when it was a burial ground for victims of the Black Death before becoming a Carthusian monastery. Since 1611 the Charterhouse has been an almshouse for single people over the age of 60, known as brothers. Today the site opens its doors to the public for the first time in 400 years.

In Lough Derg, a lake in County Donegal, Ireland, sits Station Island. It’s a small, green, picturesque spot of land with breathtaking vistas of the Atlantic and the Irish countryside. It’s also a gateway to Hell.  Legend holds that St. Patrick was visited by Jesus on Station Island; the Son of God led Patrick to a pit that was a portal to hell. Today, a monastery sits on the island as a means of shielding the Earth from this portal, and tourism is generally discouraged.
