However, legend says that no one has been able to go beyond the fifth one!

Story: According to a local tradition, the volcano was believed to be a God and a sorceress lived inside the fiery pit of the caldera. In 1529, Mercedarian Fray Francisco de Bobadilla hauled a cross up the volcano, hoping to exorcise what he believed was the Mouth of Hell. Not only him, another man named Friar Toribio Benavente wrote in 1541 that the continuous activity at the volcanic site must have supernatural causes and he called it “the place from which the condemned are thrown by the demons.”

Story: This ancient Greek site was considered fictional until very recently rediscovered during an archaeological dig. It revealed the remains of a temple situated on a thermal spring, believed to be the gate to Hell. The toxic smoke wafts out of the tunnels beneath; it is believed that these were often inhaled by the priests of Pluto and that it sent them into hallucinogenic trance states. A Greek philosopher claimed that “any animal that passes inside meets instant death.”

Site: Rome, Italy

Story: According to the Roman historian Livy, the pit appeared in the middle of Rome and absolutely nothing could fill it. An oracle prophesied that the pit would not close until a sacrifice was made. If not, the chasm would destroy the Roman Republic. Marcus Curtius, on whom the site was named, realized that Rome’s strength lied in the weapons and bravery of its citizens. So, fully armed and armored, he rode his horse into the pit. It is said “he rode straight into the underworld”.

Story: It’s an extremely active volcanic site, probably because of which it is considered to be one of the entrances to Hell.

People have reported seeing birds flying in the fire, thinking of them as swarming souls of people who’ve died. Some folks also believe that it’s a place where witches meet with the devil.

It’s said that the first prisoner started screaming a few seconds later and when pulled back up, he had aged about 30 years!
