After the eruption of 1104 stories, probably spread de­lib­er­ate­ly through Europe by Cis­ter­cian monks, told that Hekla was the gateway to Hell. The belief that Hekla was the gate to Hell per­sist­ed until the 1800s. Ap­par­ent­ly, Jules Verne was inspired by the story. In his "Journey to the Center of the Earth", a path down­wards is found inside other Ice­landic volcano, Snæfell­sjökul­l.
