5 The Tower of London
With a hard history of one thousand years of executions and massacres taking place here, some of the inhabitants were decapitated, many ghosts have been spotted along the time. The spirit of the wife of Henry VIII has been seen carrying her head, she was beheaded in 1536 here.
4 The Queen Mary in California
This is an old ship that was transformed in a hotel in 1967, the fights and fires that killed some members of the crew including children created restless souls that haunt the cabins and the engine room with voices, screams and knockings in the walls.
3 The Paris Catacombs
The catacombs are a network of tunnels beneath the city, they were founded in 1700 and were used to deposit skeletal remains of the dead people when the space in the town cemeteries was not enough, this maze became full itself as the city grew.
2 Edimburgh Castle, Scotland
Parts of this building are nine hundred years old, it has a dungeon which was the place of many deaths, the manifestations here are mostly visual.
1 Eastern State Penitentiary, Pennsylvania
Built in 1829 this prison has got seven times more people over its capacity and was a very stressful place because of that, Al Capone was imprisoned here.
Many of us don’t believe in these haunted places, however it could be a extraordinary experience to visit one of them even for a skeptic.
