10 Haunted Places Across the World

Looking for a scare this Halloween season? Instead of visiting a manufactured haunted house, how about visiting a truly haunted destination. And here for you today, to get you on your way, is a list of 10 haunted places around the world:

Isla De Las Muñecas, Mexico City, Mexico
Come visit this off-shore island near Mexico City during the day or the night, and be prepared to feel it’s spooky aura either way. The story behind the Isla De Las Muñecas (Island of the Dolls) is that a caretaker had found the body of a young girl who drowned in mysterious circumstances. Since then, dolls have appeared in the trees near the sight, and while their appearance alone is enough to cause a fright, when you walk around and hear them whisper to each other, it’s a whole other level of scary.

The Ancient Ram Inn, Gloucestershire, England
Revered as one of the most haunted house in all of England, this rustic inn dating back to the 12th century is a main stop for ghost chasers and paranormal investigators. Originally built as a housing domicile for workers that constructed the church across the street, numerous accounts of haunted sightings have taken place in the house including 7-foot shadow apparitions, torn furniture, light flickerings, and physical contact.

Monte Cristo Homestead, Junee, Australia
Reportedly Australia’s most haunted house, the Monte Cristo Homestead has a good story behind it. The originally proprietor, Christopher Crawley, built the house in 1884 in the advent of a railroad line soon being placed near the residence. When he died, his wife Elizabeth Crawley went into extreme mourning. She spent the next 23 years in the house, only leaving twice, until she died herself. And today many say she still roams the halls of this historic manor.

Villisca Ax Murder House, Villisca, Iowa, United States
Overnight stays are welcomed by reservation only to this infamous ax murder house in a small town of the Midwestern state of Iowa. Still a sleepy town, the Villisca community was shocked in 1912 when 6 children and 2 adults were viscously murdered in their bedrooms by an ax wielding psychopath. The murders were never solved, and because of that, the house is reportedly haunted by the poor souls that lost their lives.

Beechworth Lunatic Asylum, Victoria, Australia
The word lunatic asylum’s always bring to mind the possibility of a good haunting, and the Beechworth Lunatic Asylum in Victoria, Australia doesn’t disappoint. Holding 1,200 patients at one time, it is reported that over 3,000 patients have died within its walls over the years of operations. Now, the asylum hosts numerous tours including the well-respected Beechworth Ghost Tours.

Aokigahara Forest, Japan
Also known as the haunted forest of death, the suicide forest, or the demon forest; this haunted sea of trees has been home to over 500 confirmed suicides. The creepy topography and low-hanging trees have supposedly made it a good place to take your own life and make no mistake, this is not a tourist attraction. Haunted or not, the creepy statistics of this forest is enough to make you shiver.

Tower of London, London
The Tower of London claims to be one of the most haunted buildings around, and with 900 years of existence, there is plenty of history to haunt the walls. With a history of executions and shady dealings, and a ton of tourists, come visit it yourself to see the spookiness in person.

The Hill of Crosses, Lithuania
The Hill of Crosses for some is a Christian pilgrimage, for others it’s a haunted memorial. That’s because with over 100,000 crosses standing tall from the ground in a crowded mass, the place does have a certain eerie undertone to it. Visit it for spiritual reasons, or for ghostly adventures, whatever you do, be respectful and always keep one eye open.

The Catacombs of Paris, Paris
The Catacombs of Paris is a well visited, and certainly spooky destination underneath the streets of Paris. That’s because the remains of some 6 million Paris residence line the walls. Used as a cemetery in a time where cemetery space was lacking, take a tour, and you can’t help but feel some anguish among all the bones and history.

Pripyhat, Ukraine
Priphyat, or better known as the Chernobyl evacuation site, is one spooky ghost town. Abandoned at a moment’s notice, this now-not-so radioactive zone has been host to plenty of visitors looking for a scare.
