If you are a lover of mysteries, this is the place you should visit. Rosslyn Chapel, built in the 15th century Scotland is full of wonders still unexplained.
It’s long connection with Templars and Freemasons made it appear in “The Da Vinci code”. Many people still believe that this is where the Holy Grail is.
Also, green men are a common site, but this chapel has the same face engraved 120 times.
There are also 213 cubes carved in the ceiling (current version is that they are representing musical notes).
Then there is the famous Prentice Pillar, over which a jealous stonemason killed his apprentice.
Strange carvings include maize and aloe vera, which would suggest that someone discovered America way before we think.
I’m not much of a person for conspiracy theories, but this place is so delightfully eerie. It has that Ninth gate, Eco feel, if you feel me.
