Travel and Leisure is showcasing hidden spaces in some of the world’s most famous landmarks.
For example, the Eiffel Tower has a secret apartment, Mt. Rushmore has a hidden “hall of records,” Niagara Falls has a “cave of evil spirits,” and Grand Central Station has a tennis court.
“Gustave Eiffel—the mastermind behind Paris’s most famous attraction—included an apartment at the very top of the tower for himself (and the occasional visitor, like Thomas Edison),” writes Travel and Leisure. “HomeAway set up a pop-up rental in the space for four lucky winners earlier this year.”
Not all of these spaces are open to the public, but some, including the “cave of evil spirits,” are accessible for tourists.
“The Seneca Indians named this cave after the evil spirit said to be trapped inside,” writes Travel and Leisure. “Warriors who entered it were deemed ready for a battle. You can find this storied nook just down the road from Niagara Falls.”
