The top 10 most haunted places in the world

By Akanksha - March 21, 2024 12:34 AM

The world may be a scary place. That much is evident even with just a cursory check at the headlines, and that's before you include all the ghouls and ghosts. Every area of the earth is home to spirits that are lost between this world and the next. They may be looking for tranquillity or maybe simply some live humans to frighten—after all, we don't want to question the intentions of ghosts.

The world's most haunted locations range from old hospitals and mansions to mountain taverns and deserted towns. They are a spine-tingling mix of traditional eerie locations and some unexpected locations. Although the spooky season is already underway, the terror might seem all too real amid these eerie fortifications and chilly graves.

The top 10 most haunted places in the world

1. Poveglia, Italy

Perhaps the most romantic city in Europe is Venice, but it's also one of the most paranormal. Feel free to share your thoughts about cursed love below, but good luck finding a way to express yourself in the chilly Poveglia. This deserted island housed a psychiatric hospital until it closed in 1968 after being utilized for more than a century as a quarantine station. It's so terrifying that entry is forbidden, likely due to a general phobia of horror.

2. Bhangarh Fort, India

According to folklore, Bhangarh Fort, which was once a powerful castle in Rajasthan, was abandoned overnight. It's unclear why it was abandoned (some claim a hermit cursed it), but the 16th-century fortification is shrouded in mythology, and its paranormal reputation is so great that it's forbidden to enter after dark.

3. The Skirrid Inn, Wales

The oldest bar in Wales is full of ghost stories; the Welsh enjoy a good story nearly as much as they love their pubs. Nestled in the hills close to Abergavenny, The Skirrid Inn served as a hang-out for generations, and the ghosts of the hanged still prowl the halls. Not quite a small conversation for the first pint.

4. Port Arthur, Australia

To be honest, it would be strange if a prison colony from the 19th century wasn't haunted. For those who are wondering, Tasmania is the most haunted state in Australia. Port Arthur is a horrifying location where over a thousand individuals perished under appalling conditions and where psychological torture predominated over physical torture.

5. Lizzie Borden House, USA

Positive evaluations within the first few hours of operation might potentially undermine the legitimacy of a haunted home, but this is America, baby! Furthermore, the house's notoriety as a double-murder scene was not supported by Lizzie Borden's acquittal, but how else to account for the weird noises at night? When you went to bed, that couch wasn't there, was it?

6. Chuuk Lagoon, Micronesia

Despite being a tropical paradise, the Chuuk Lagoon has sinister mysteries hidden beneath its surface. The lagoon attracts wreck-diving aficionados who are eager to locate the remnants of the Japanese South Pacific fleet, as it is home to the largest ghost fleet in the world. Are you trying to find the most stunning haunted place on earth? Travel to Micronesia as soon as possible.

7. Banff Springs Hotel, Canada

Only the most courageous (and affluent) people should stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The grand hotel, built in the late 1800s, is said to be haunted by several ghosts. The hotel boasts several strange features, including a secret chamber without windows or doors and a burning bride, the most famous of which is former bellhop Sam Macauley. At least there's a benefit: if you try to tip Macauley, his ghost is said to go.

8. Tower of London, England

To be honest, wouldn't it be strange if the Tower of London wasn't haunted? This 11th-century citadel on the north bank of the Thames was, from the beginning, a haven of tyranny, a place where rebellious elements were driven to the verge of death by brutal methods. There are exactly thirteen spirits in the tower now, ranging from explorers and queens to nameless souls. Remain still if you feel someone tapping you on the shoulder.

9. La Recoleta Cemetery, Argentina

It would be easy to fill this list with cemeteries, but ghosts haunting graveyards are nothing new. Numerous prominent figures in Argentina are buried at La Recoleta, Buenos Aires, where paranormal activity is at an entirely other level. The crypts within are unable to hold the restless spirits underneath, resulting in a celebrity-like gathering of ghosts.

10. Aley Grand Hotel, Lebanon

The Grand Hotel was the first upscale establishment in the fourth-largest city in Lebanon, but those days of hosting celebrities and the affluent are long gone. Instead, restless souls gaze out over the city renowned as the Bride of the Summer Resorts as they meander through its deserted hallways in quest of tranquillity. Another name for Aley is the City of Fog, which has a somewhat ghostly ring to it.
