Want to Buy the Most Haunted Place on Earth?

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer into the paranormal, have we get a deal for you. Poveglia, a deserted island in Venice, is going to be auctioned next month. It’s been called the most haunted place on Earth. Back in the 18th century, it was a quarantine zone for people with infectious diseases. In the early 20th century, it was used as an insane asylum. According to legend, the doctor who ran the asylum threw himself off the island’s bell tower because he was possessed.

For the past 50 years, it’s been home only to the ghosts of those who never got off the island. And now, the Italian government is willing to let an investor pick it up for a song. Or a wail, or a shriek. Whatever.

Take a tour – if you dare…
