13. The Turin Shroud

This length of linen cloth is believed by some to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth, despite tests dating it to the medieval period. Nevertheless, a poll of Telegraph Travel readers last year found that only 53 per cent believe it is a forgery.

It went on display for the first time in five years in 2015; the next public viewing is scheduled for 2025.
