More Creepy Places Around the World

Based on the success of last year’s Creepy Places Around the World post, we thought it world be fun to do another one this year. Without further ado, here is our second edition of places from around the world where the restless spirits of the night linger.

The Bones Chapel of Capela dos Ossos
– It is estimated that bones from approximately 5,000 bodies were used to cover the walls and pillars of the chapel. The Bones Chapel also features a ceiling made of brick that is painted white with death motifs. To add to the morbidness, two dehydrated corpses, one of which is a child, dangle from a chain. >>> More

Romania’s Spooky Castle Bran – Narrow winding stairways lead through some 60 timbered rooms, many of which are connected by underground passages housing collections of furniture, weapons and armor dating from the 14th to 19th centuries. Have a good look around, but you might want to stock up on crucifixes and garlic if you stay after dark. >>> More

The Wall of Skulls – Tzompantli, otherwise known as the “wall of skulls,” at Chichen Itza was the sacrifice platform where the Mayans displayed the heads of their dead enemies, representing the glory of military conquest and serving as a warning to potential invaders. The platform walls of the Tzompantli have carved reliefs of four different subjects. The primary subject is the skull rack itself. The others show a scene with a human sacrifice, eagles eating human hearts and skeletonized warriors with shields and arrows. >>> More

  • I thought the Cango Caves in South Africa were kinda creepy. Actually, I wish right now I could be in either Ireland or somewhere in Latin America. Halloween is coming and the Latin American Day of the Dead is too. There are going to be some amazing locals coming out all over the world in the next week. I would kill to be back in Oaxaca this weekend. I was in Japan for an OBon and went to one really good festival, wish I would have had a camera, but I had been there for weeks and got lazy about bringing my camera with me. It would have been tricky trying to take pictures of all those lanterns at night, but worth it.

    Oh well, I’m going to go take pictures of people and kids on Halloween anyway. Maybe someday I’ll get to do it in Dublin. Heck, I’ve even heard it’s celebrated in Bangkok. Is that true? It would not be surprising, the Thai People seem to have an excellent sense of the macabre.

  • these are really creepy,everyone likes to make his journey,memorable in which they enjoy their journey with comofort, luxury,arrangments, pakckage and best services with economical rates, i m feeling lucky that i found a travel agency “Sato Travel” which provide all of these facilities , for the civilan and army personnels to enjoy their vaccations around the world.
