Alcatraz is an infamous former prison located on an island in the middle of San Francisco Bay. Some of the USA’s most dangerous (and famous) criminals were imprisoned there. Alcatraz was famed for having never had an inmate successfully escape. Cell tours are popular and allow you to learn intimately about the prison.
