It is possible to break into certain jails quite easily; nevertheless, these three prisons are among the most hazardous in the world, making it nearly difficult to start an attack on security officers and successfully escape.
A terrible jail from which the only way out was to die. When the Tadmor jail in the Syrian desert was used as a detention facility by Hafez El-opponents Assad's from 1971 until 2000, it was a nightmare for all those imprisoned there.
Muslim Brotherhood members opposed to the administration of the current president demonstrated outside the fortress's walls, generating social unrest and increasing the movement's popularity
In 2015, it was taken over by the Islamic State, who set fire to the city's structures. Tadmor Prison was dubbed "the worst jail in the land" by those fortunate enough to have survived there without going insane.
2. Alcatraz prison
Originally built as a fortification to guard the harbour in 1850, the structure was strengthened by American engineers by adding a citadel and thick walls. However, Alcatraz was first used as a military jail in the early 1900s before being turned over to the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 1933 for administration purposes.

A high-ranking prisoner might expect better living circumstances and more free time, but this was not the case for the lower-ranked inmate. There are a couple things going for it here. In place of his name, we now refer to him just by his identification number (ID#). As a result of the limited view from his window, he has no idea what's going on around him.
