Halloween is only a few days away, and this year is sadly a whole lot quieter with fewer festivities due to Corona. While you can't go trick-or-treating, you can discover the darkest, most haunted, and terrifying places in the world from the comfort of your home. Are you already feeling the chills running down your spine? We dare you to read on!


Poveglia Island, Italy

Located south of the Venetian lagoon, the island of Poveglia is uninhabited and currently closed off to the public. The island was once used as a place to burn corpses that had died from the plague. The island is now famous for hearing the voices of plague victims and seeing apparitions of supernatural presences.

Hellfire Club, Montpelier Hill, Ireland

Not far from Dublin, is the Hellfire Club. Built in 1925 by an English parliamentarian with stones from old tombs, the lodge is said to be a place where a small group of Dublin elitists gathered to worship the devil. Their meetings included animal sacrifices and even murder!



Monte Cristo Homestead, New South Wales, Australia

The Monte Cristo Homestead is believed to be the most haunted house in all of Australia. This Victorian mansion features multiple ghosts, including a child who fell down the stairs, a maid who jumped off the balcony, and a stable boy who was burned alive. The most active ghost, however, is the owner's son who was found, chained next to his mother's corpse. The villa is currently a bed and breakfast. Would you be brave enough to spend a night here?


Bhangarh Fort, India

It looks beautiful from the photo, but don't be fooled, Bhangarh is considered to be the most haunted fort in the world. Consisting of the ruins of a fortified city built in the 17th century, the fort is made up of bazaars, royal palaces, and numerous temples. Cursed by various legends, it is now an archaeological site better known as the "House of Ghosts". You can take a tour with a guide, but be sure to visit in daylight as the locals believe that anyone who spends the night will never be seen again.

Village of Corinaldo, Ancona, Italy

Corinaldo is a small town in the province of Ancona and is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Corinaldo, however, is also known for being the "city of madmen" or "city of witches", from which, it is said, a long-lived lineage derives. One of the most heartfelt and engaging Halloween parties in Italy takes place here, with the participation of thousands of spectators every year.

Dragsholm Slot, Denmark

Dragsholm Slot is an elegant Danish countryside hotel not far from Copenhagen. It also happens to be one of the most haunted castle in Europe. Apparently, Dragsholm is home to around 100 ghosts, including the Earl of Bothwell, the infamous husband of Mary Queen of Scots, who died imprisoned in the castle basement. If you are up to the scare, guided tours are also available.



The Island of the Dolls, Mexico

The "Isla de las Muñecas" is located in Xochimilco, Mexico. Legend has it that one day Julian, the only resident, found the lifeless body of a little girl and has since surrounded her house and the island with mutilated and broken dolls to keep her spirit away. Founder Julian was later found dead of a heart attack while floating in water. A place marked by tragedy and mystery, every year hundreds of people come to bring dolls as offerings.



Aokigahara Forest, Japan

Aokigahara, also known in Japanese as "sea of trees", is a 35 km² forest located at the base of Mount Fuji. It is a favorite place for ghost hunters and dark presences, as the forest itself has a very high rate of suicide. It is not recommended to leave the official path due to the high probability of never leaving the forest again.

Castle of Good Hope, Cape Town, South Africa

We finish our compilation of terror with the African continent, more precisely with Cape Town in South Africa. Built in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company, the Castle of Good Hope is the nation's oldest and best preserved building. It also is home to a family of ghosts, including a tall man caught jumping from one of the castle walls; the Lady in Gray, often seen running around the castle holding her face and crying hysterically; and the ghost of a black dog jumping at unsuspecting visitors, only to vanish into thin air.
