Well, there's a volcano(called Masaya Volcano) in Nicaragua that was topped with a cross by the monks of a local monastery as they believed it would prevent demons from crawling to the surface and entering Earth. There was a controversy that the volcano was a gateway to hell. Keep in mind, this was long before people understood what volcanoes were.
Perhaps you may find inspiration in that.
Here's something else inspiring:
There's a chapel in southern France that rises 280 feet in the air, built on a massive lava plug. It's called Saint Michel d’Aiguilhe in Le Puy en Velay, France. It takes 268 steps to reach the top. Quite a sight if I may say so myself.
For additional inspiration, you can look up the prophecies of Nostradamus.
Well, if you would like more information I would be happy to help you(just message me). I'm a mythology buff and constantly reading about the darker aspects in life, so I may have a few suggestions.
