The Hermitage inside an Extinct Volcano

I know what you’re thinking: if a hermit is really committed to isolating him or herself from the sins of the world, then an active volcano would be a better choice.

Still, the Santa Margarida hermitage inside this volcano is a good pick, given how hard it would be to access it. This Catholic hermitage can be found in the far northeastern corner of Spain, and is one of many extinct volcanos in the region. This volcano, which is named Croscat, has been inactive for 17,000 years, so it’s probably safe to visit the 11th Century hermitage tucked inside.
