The World’s Most Haunted Island

Poveglia Island, in the Venetian Lagoon, Italy, is surrounded by a number of spine-chilling legends and is described by locals as the ‘most haunted place on Earth. The 18-acre plot of land was once a quarantine station for people with infectious disease and a mass burial ground for plague victims who were sent there to be burned. According to historical estimates as many as 150,000 people died on the island. Local authorities have closed off the island in an effort to protect the public but recently the island was sold to a businessman to raise capital. (Source)
