41 Secretly Incredible Travel Destinations
The Eiffel tower, Golden Gate Bridge and the Coliseum may be amazing in their own right, but there's something special about going to a spectacular location that few travelers venture to. Take a virtual journey with me to these secretly underrated places... Albarracín is a beautifully preserved medieval village in Northern Spain. The rock paintings in the cliff-foot caves of the Albarracin Cultural Park (some of the most important evidences of the Levantine prehistoric art of Spain) and the "Picaportes" (door knobs) are something to marvel at! Take a trip to the hanging Gardens of Marqueyssac overlooking the Dordogne and La Roque Gageac. From July to the end of August the gardens are open every Thursday evening and lit by candlelight. The Swallow's nest is a decorative castle located between Yalta and Alupka, built on top of the 130 foot high Aurora Cliff. Bishop Castle is undoubtedly one of the craziest castles in the world, created by the one-man castle builder Jim Bishop.
