A sanctuary, in its original meaning, is a sacred place, such as a shrine. By the use of such places as a safe haven, by extension the term has come to be used for any place of safety. This secondary use can be categorized into human sanctuary, a safe place for humans, such as a political sanctuary; and non-human sanctuary, such as an animal or plant sanctuary.

“He took the props down used for propping open,
And set them up again for propping shut,
The widespread double doors two stories high.

Was that tramp taking sanctuary there
Must leave them unlocked to betray his presence.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
