Stonehenge, England - 9 Most Mysterious Places in the World

Salisbury Plain is in the middle of the verdant lowlands of south-central England. It peaks and troughs of heath from the oak forests, Stonehenge has long oozed mystery and magic. Created an estimated 5,000 years ago. This circular conglomeration of huge megalith stones is thought to have been made with unique bluestone material. That could only have been quarried from the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, some 200 miles away in Wales. Mystery surrounds both how the Neolithic people managed to transport such huge rocks all that way, and as to the purpose of the building. Today, it’s wrapped up in Arthurian legends and attracts Pagans for the summer solstice.
