Poveglia Island

Poveglia Island

Poveglia Island is considered the most haunted location in Italy. In 2007, mass graves were found of bubonic plague victims. In 1922, the existing buildings were converted into a hospital for the mentally ill. According to a local folklore, the treating doctor tortured and butchered many of the patients before going “mad” and jumping to his death from the bell tower. In 1968 the hospital was closed and the island was completely abandoned.
