5 Creepy Places To Visit On Earth

Dark forests, abandoned buildings, desolate cities. They’re all everywhere and are home to many supernatural, if not creepy happenings and it is often easy to completely forget about them when you are living in your cosy house. Some of them are often incredibly close to you, you would be surprised. So in response I have compiled a list of the 11 most creepiest places on earth that will make you stay up all night.

The Catacombs of Paris are underground ossuaries in Paris, France and is home to the remains of approximately 6 million people. Around the 17th and 18th centuries Paris’s cemeteries were getting too full which brought about several problems, hence the creation of these Catacombs. It is currently deemed “The World’s Largest Grave”. To read more visit Wikipedia – Catacombs of Paris.

Despite it’s name, the Hellingly Hospital is not a hospital but an insane asylum – or was one. Until it was abandoned and closed down in 1994. It was started up in 1903 in East sussex. If you are still not freaked out, you can read more at Wikipedia – Hellingly Hospital

Cemeteries, everyone will eventually be put into one. Are they creepy? Yes. But this specific cemetery takes creepiness to a whole new level. It isn’t a single cemetery per se, considering it is made up of 11 cemeteries stacked upon each other! The real number of burials here are uncertain due to the multiple layers but there are presently 12,000 tombstones visible and it is estimated that there may have been approximately 100,000 burials in all. This is an interesting (and creepy) one to read upon, for a longer description visit Wikipedia – Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague

If the picture isn’t scary enough, the back story definitely will be. Although currently abandoned, Isla de las Munecas, also known as the island of dolls once had a single inhabitant, his name being Don Julian Santana Barrera. One day a young girl drowned just off the shore of this island, and Don found her dolls floating in the water, then he found another, then another. Supposedly, he decorated the island with these exact dolls before then drowning in the exact same place as the girl did. Creepy, huh? For more information visit Isla de las Muñecas

5 Actun Tunichil Muknal

Also known as the Cave of the Stone Sepulcher, this cave houses numerous skeletons as seen in the picture above. But what makes this so creepy is that these skeletons belonged to children, sacrificed children to be more precise.Though the cave doesn’t only contain skeletons, it contains many ceramics and stoneware. The ceramics are so significant because they were all marked with “kill holes”, meaning they were likely to have been used in some kind of ritual.
