“Ruins are more beautiful than adorned castles, for ruins are the cathedrals of time.”

Ben Caesar

Desolate towns, empty castles, once-glamorous hotels, witness the world’s top 15 creepiest abandoned places, out of the many other creepy things in the world.

Asylums, in general context, give you chills. An abandoned asylum where 50,000 patients died, now that just worse!

The population of this island is a stark 0. This bare land was once a bustling village, inhabited by fishermen and other tradesmen. However, soil erosion and land degradation lead to the land being gradually inhabitable. All that remains on Holland island now is a lonely abandoned house.

4) Craco, Italy

Craco, in Italy, is now regarded as a ghost town. Instability of land, lack of agricultural activities and destructive landslides greatly contributed to this phenomenon.

One of the largest factories in New York, dating back to 1856, now remains abandoned. The labour, and subsequently, the produce of the factory came to a screeching halt as a result of a fire in the factory. It is widely believed that the fire was a result of a blast created by German agents out of envy.

Defunct fountains, abandoned castles, empty grounds don’t sound a lot like Disneyland. Except when its construction is never completed. This abandoned theme park, located in China is a fascinating site to explore.
