Fort Eben-Emael (Belgium)
The first of the sites that you will not be able to see on Google Maps is the Eben-Emael fort, a military installation located between the Belgian cities of Liege and Maastrichton the Belgian-Dutch border.
This fort was built between 1931 and 1935 to defend Belgium from a German attack, something it did not achieve since, on May 10, 1940 the German army neutralized this fort.
Area 51 (United States)
Another of the military installations that Google Maps hides from us is the famous Area 51, located in the middle of the Nevada desert in the United States. This facility is one of the most secret of the US government and the most conspiracy theorists affirm that in this place evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial life is kept.
High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP)-Alaska
The headquarters of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), which is located in Alaska, is another of the places that Google Maps does not let us see, surely because, as in the previous case, it is a military installation surrounded by a halo of mystery and conspiracy theories.
This program was funded by the United States Air Force, Navy, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and its mission is to study the ionosphere, which is the layer of the earth’s atmosphere that can reflect radio waves and which extends from 80 to 1000 km above the surface of the earth.
Isabel II Fortress (Spain)
The Elizabeth II Fortress is located at the entrance to the port of Mahón, in the Balearic Islands and it is hidden in Google Maps because, to this day, it is still a key military infrastructure for Spain.
Punggye-ri (North Korea)
Punggye-ri is the main nuclear base in North Korea and the most secret in the Asian country and for this reason it is also hidden on Google Maps.
Calle Espiritu Santo, 21 (Madrid) Spain
In addition to military installations, there are also other places that Google Maps hides from us, such as famous houses, and one of them is the number 21 of the street Espiritu Santo in MadridWhat is it the house where Enrique Urquijo, the singer of the musical group Los Secretos, was found dead.
2125 Seymour Avenue (Cleveland) United States
Another of the houses that Google Maps hides from us is number 2125 Seymour Avenue in Cleveland, United States, and the reason is that this house was the scene of a crime, since in this place Arial Castro kept kidnapped three minors for a decade subjecting them to constant abuse.
Jeannette Island (Russia)
Another of the places that Google Maps hides from us is Jeannette Island, the easternmost of the De Long Islands, which is located in the New Siberian Archipelago, in the East Siberian Sea.
If you search for this island on Google Maps you will only see a mysterious black spot.
Sand Island (Australia)
The Sand Island or Sandy Island is located off the northeast coast of Australia and is also hidden on Google Maps, since if we look for it in the Google Maps app The following message will appear: “Not available -14.663183, 135.876563”.
Amchitka Island (Alaska)
The last place that Google Maps hides from us is Amchitka Island, an archipelago located in the Aleutian Chain of Alaska. If you look for this island in the Google maps application you will see that half of it is blurred and this is because, in the 1950s, this island was selected by the United States Atomic Energy Commission to be the site of underground nuclear tests and a total of 3 nuclear tests were carried out on it.
Today, this island is constantly controlled to prevent radioactive leaks and in 2025 it will become a restricted-access wildlife reserve.
