There are some places in this big world of ours that have been deemed as precious. Sometimes this is because these places have immense historical value or are considered international treasures. Other places are highly secure because they are the dwelling places of important people or are home to large sums of money.
Whatever the exact case, all ten items on this list are guarded around the clock by men and women armed to the teeth with guns and other deadly weapons.

10. The Parksafe Car Park in Derby, England
Unlike some of the other entries on this list, this secure location is nothing special. Indeed, the Parksafe Car Park is a nondescript parking lot in the small British city of Derby. However, British police officers have a reason to keep so many eyes on this garage on Bold Lane.
9. Svalbard Global Seed Vault
There are some things that are more precious than gold. Seeds, for instance. Without seeds, farmers across the world cannot grow food. Without access to food, people go hungry and starve to death.
8. Iranian Gold Reserve Building
The theocratic regime in Tehran lords over one of the most secretive governments in the world. Ever since the revolution of 1979, Iran has been an international pariah and the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
7. The Granite Mountain Records Vault
The argument could be made that religions have more global power than governments or international organizations like the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, or the World Bank. Everyone knows that the Roman Catholic Church and the Islamic faith have powerful associations throughout the world, but few know about the global reach of Mormons.
6. The White House
Everyone in the world knows that the home of the American president is heavily guarded by members of the U.S. Secret Service. The White House is also encircled by a high iron fence, is guarded 24/7 by armed guard posts, and contains bullet-resistant windows.
5. The Federal Reserve Bank
The reason why the U.S. Federal Reserve bank in New York City is so guarded is obvious: this organization provides the money and gold resources that are used by so many governments throughout the world.
4. The Vatican’s Secret Archives
The Roman Catholic Church is a global institution that can trace its origins all the way back to the first pope, Saint Peter, in AD 30. After Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire in A.D. 379 during the reign of Emperor Theodosis I, the Vatican has been centered in Rome.
3. Fort Knox
Americans know that Fort Knox is synonymous with complete security. For the most part, this U.S. Army facility in rural Kentucky serves as a basic military installation. Thousands of Army recruits receive basic training here.
2. The Korean Demilitarized Zone
The Korean War began in 1950 and has not ended since. Although open fighting stopped in 1953, the governments of China, North Korea, South Korea, and the United States are still technically at war with one another. And given the rouge behavior of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, this volatile situation is not going to change any time soon.
1. Area 51
For decades, a highly secretive facility in the Nevada desert has been the most heavily guarded place on Earth. Area 51 is actually a part of the Edwards Air Force Base in Lincoln County, Nevada. Area 51 is classified as a restricted area and a special use airspace.
Area 51 entered the world’s imagination in 1947.
