The most haunted place on Earth is in one of the most popular tourism locations in the world, located between Venice and Lido in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy. But Poveglia rarely sees any visitors.
The uninhabited 17-acre island, was once a dumping ground for dying plague victims.
More recently it was home to a mental hospital run by a cruel doctor who experimented on patients with lobotomies. He later threw himself from the hospital tower after claiming he'd been driven mad by ghosts.
And now it's up for sale.
The Italian government is offering the macabre location for sale in a bid to reduce the country’s public debt.
Variously described as the 'island of madness' and 'hell', it is arguably the most haunted place on earth, The Independent reports.
Today, the island is a hotspot for ghost hunters who come searching for the rumored spirits, IB Times reports.
