Four Sites Around The World That May Be Haunted

Haunted castles, plantations, and catacombs probably aren’t at the top of the list for most travelers. However, for some people, a trip isn’t complete without a touch of horror.

If you’re interested in haunted sites, or those with a morbid history, here are four suggestions.

Rose Hall – Jamaica

This plantation house was the home of the infamous Annie Palmer. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a Jamaican who hasn’t heard of “the White Witch of Rosehall.”

By all accounts, Palmer was a sadist, who was versed in the dark arts. Shortly after arriving in Jamaica, she married her first husband and later killed him. Her two other husbands, and the slaves she took as lovers, met the same grisly fate. She’s buried in a tomb on the property, and her ghost is believed to haunt the grounds.

The house fell into disrepair for a time, before being restored. For those who want that extra layer of horror, night tours are available.

The Tower of London – England

Since the Tower of London was a site of imprisonment, torture, and execution for centuries, of course, it would be haunted.

Some of England’s most famous historical figures are linked to the Tower. Two of Henry VIII’s wives were executed on Tower Green, and Guy Fawkes was imprisoned for plotting to blow up Parliament. Don’t be surprised if you encounter a ghost or several.

Consider buying tickets in advance to avoid the lines.

Cape Coast Castle – Ghana

This slave castle sends chills down your spine on sight. Some visitors have had visceral reactions, especially while touring the dungeons.

Whether there’s paranormal activity can’t be confirmed. The reality of what happened there is terrifying enough. The guided tours range from 45 minutes to an hour.

Il Convento dei Cappuccini – Italy

The Eternal City of Rome has witnessed it all: murder, intrigue, and war. Il Convento dei Cappuccini features a museum, church, and crypt.

When you approach the crypt’s threshold, you’ll see a message that translates to, “That which you are, we once were; that which we are, you shall be.”

On display along the walls and ceiling, are the bones of 4,000 friars from centuries ago. It’s creepy, but also artistic in a macabre kind of way. Tickets can be purchased online or on-site.
