    This week, Matt and I explored the island of Poveglia, one of the scariest and eeriest abandoned places we've ever been to. With over 160,000 deaths having taken place on the island, half of the island's soil is from human remains...

    Lol I know the plague is curable but you can still get it from the island. The ashes and remains aren’t good for lungs so you should wear mask next time

    Can't believe there is no resort on some of the most expensive realestate in the world. You are only making it creepy to make your vid look crazy. Someone will resort it up. In 21st century, only the Italians would be scared of gosts or the devil or some unearthly thing. Would be a tourst Mecca if it was open. Hiroshima more dead people, come on. London the center of black death. The Somb France 150 000 killed in one battle ww1. Bones everywhere! Only in Italy...

    It really reminds me of Grosse-Ile Memorial here in Canada: www.pc.gc.ca/en/lhn-nhs/qc/grosseile which was a qurantine island for immigrants and thousands of people died there from various infectious diseases. They made it back alive with tours and actors. I think this island you visited should be also be used as an historical site tour. I like those kind of places because of their history.

    kids stuff- try NEW IDRA an EPA abandoned cinnabar-mercury mining town in the mountains by Hollister Ca ... on the road in there are cattle skulls in the creek bed dead from mercury poisoning - you round a bend and theres a huge hill with gigantic mining machines toppling down the sides left to rust - the mine tailings pile is still there - and at the time i was there it was ALTERNATIVE SENTENCING for the SAN JOSE SHERIFFS DEPT - and a DRUG TREATMENT facility run by a non profit foundation.....
    the main buildings were set on fire by a crazy homosexual drug addict cook black guy - the ranch house where an IRON CROWN OF SATAN was on the mantel place and the house was full of pictures of the original owners and workers--- everything worked and there was a ton of old cars trucks semis that all worked ....the non profit foundation had a pitbull-sharpei retirement kennel and also raised and sold Rottweilers - lots of blind old dogs weird huh
    there was also a couple of old horses that hung around for some reason ....a huge old horse and cattle barn and area ....andget THIS a HERD OF CATTLE AND FERAL HOGS that would stampede out of the surrounding hills when the TRUCKS CAME because they were loaded with ROTTEN BREAD from the SAN FRANCISCO BAKERYS and supermarkets ....
    they would toss barrels of bread to the cattle and hogs who ate it and then began TRIPPING ON THE ERGOT MOLD - highly addictive ,,,,the cattle and hogs would run off and fight and make wild noises for DAYS afterwards ............
    WEIRDEST PART- the non profit foundation did burn tear outs for insurance companys and the ALTERNATIVE sentence prisoners were the workers - the ones who worked EXTRA HARD and were in an APPROVED relationship - yes men and women...were awarded CONJUGAL TIME at the ranch in a nice house---for a weekend
    most UNIQUE feature and MOST DANGEROUS ........the DAM - yes its in the desert with high mountains of BIG SUR behind it ....a road goes up there and its a PRIVATELY OWNED DAM from the mining company times in the 1800s still works with big old gates and sluices pipes that run down to the town ........
    to PROTECT the water supply GUARD DUTY is a requirement and theres a GUARD CABIN with 2 bunks a wood stove and a CB radio run off car batterys ....HOURLY CHECK IN required
    you walk guard duty with another prisoner and 2 big ol rottweilers on chains and gather fire wood from the brush - they give you rations of food to cook and water to drink .........
    i did the guard duty TWICE once with a ex con druggy and the other was a guy who beat up a cop - both were dangerous lunatics
    the water was drinkable up in the dam and we opened the pipes when ever the ranch house said the tank below was getting low........
    hog hunters would drive through and campers with mexican mafia meth cooks and once a CIA crew came up to check on a weather station -- yes the CIA owns all the weather stations thats well known.
    another part of the town was rented by SURVIVALISTS who were white supremacists who drove around in jeeps with side arms
    the whole town was painted by the prisoners and lots of abandoned houses still stood and they scavanged parts from them windows doors electrical wiring copper pipeing for repairs
    there was always a threat of being knifed or killed constantly by any of the other prisoners and since WOMEN were in the mix - that bizarre top dog alpha male scenario to have them as allies and for sex.........the foundation owner lorded over the whole thing like a king in San Jose with a big ol house - i recall having to carry a HUGE heavy EAGLE CLAW BATHTUB made out of ZINC with 7 other men up the stairs of his house 1 step at a time it took HOURS it was so heavy and unweldy.......
    compared to the RIOTS i went through at SUSANVILLE state prison and at DUELL prison intake in TRACY this place was more scary ....
    it was the weirdness of it - the satanic worship thing and the iron crown the bizarre antics of the prisoners allowed FREE REIGN of a deserted city condemned by the EPA for MERCURY poisoning - and the giant signs next to the road in CAUTION THE AIR AND DUST IN THIS AREA IS CONTAMINATED WITH MERCURY DO NOT STOP .
    i dare you chickens to go to NEW IDRA .........ITS SINCE BEEN ABANDONED completely and its on GOOGLE ................some of the houses are still there and so is SATAN!!!!!!!!!!

    At school, we went to a concentration camp for a day (here in Germany in the area I live in, it's normal for classes to visit one near) and I thought THAT was creepy and disgusting, but this? Might be even same level of creep, as there were also really bad things happening on that island....

    This island served as a so-called plague island. When the black plague („pestis“)broke out in Venice, they brought all the sick to this island to prevent the spread of the black plague in Venice ...
