People narrate chilling experiences of witnessing ghosts and spirits around the fort. No one is allowed by government’s orders to go near the fort at night! Would you dare to set foot there?
Here, trees are said to grow naturally with dolls’ heads on them! Not sweet princess type dolls, but those with ghastly faces that will spook you out! Legend says that a little girl had died on the island, and her body was found in a canal. Her spirit is said to haunt the island and make doll heads grow out from trees. Even if a tree is cut to remove these dolls, the new pruned tree grows them right back! These hanging dolls have empty eyes, frizzled hair and jarred skin, with amputated body parts. Scary, isn’t it?
Joseph, who worked here, is said to have committed suicide by hanging himself. It is said that he hated men. His ghost still seems to attack men who enter the attic. One man was hit by a lid arriving out of nowhere in the attic! The house is fully haunted, with furniture changing positions by itself, and angry ghosts heard shouting inside the premises. The house was shifted across town in the 1980’s to ward off spirits, but the ghosts went with it! Ample reason to give visitors some creeps, eh?
The castle is beautiful and haunted at the same time. Many visitors throng it for its rich history and architecture. But behind the obvious, within its folds, lie stories of bloody battles and sites of torture, and many tourists and staff have felt strange and unexplainable phenomena here. A feeling of being watched by someone, touched or pulled by invisible hands, as well as sightings of apparitions, including that of an old man, a headless drummer and a piper. People have seen shadows, strange sounds, sudden mists and drops in temperature, causing a feeling of sadness and despair. Tingling your nerves already?
These are two abandoned towns had been inhabited by miners and their labourers. When business plummeted, these towns were left to fall to ruins. It is believed that ghosts from a nearby cemetery rise up to roam the streets of La Noria. In Humberstone, the ghostly snapshots are visible on photographs. Residents who never left these towns, died and wasted away due to poverty. It is said that their children can still be seen playing in the streets. The cemetery has open exposed graves! Why indeed?
