I was watching a program the other night on venice and was amazed by the story and happenings of Poveglia in venice,
Poveglia is one of the small islands in Venice that is not open to any public to go see, The history of this island is both intreging and
It was once used to place the dead bodies of the black plague and those who were suffering from it, A plague doctor would look for people suffering
from the plague and take them to this island to die, basicly they were dumped there.
long long after this a hospital was built there by a mad doctor who used to carry out experiments on people and basicly tourture them,
This place still stands today,
As you can imagin with all the events that have happened on this island there has got to be some real ghostly experiences there,
It is said that they do allow psycics on the island from time to time but most have left terrified!
This really got my interest so i was wondering if others know of any storys of people who have maybe gone there?
heres a little more on this island
Eventually the doctor began to see the spirits himself and jumped (or was thrown?) from the bell tower to his death. Rumor has it he is now bricked up
in that same tower. Some say you can still hear the bell ringing late at night.
