    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...

    By the way, the "gl" in Italian is pronounced like "ll" (double l) in Spanish. In the phonetic alphabet it's "poveʎʎa"

    you know that going to Poveglia is illegal,right? To go there,you need first to ask a special autorization to Venice's municipality not just a " yes" from a person living there. Just to let you know...

    I´m so sorry to inform you that Poveglia
    is just an island with a former hospital and nursing home. They have given up the hospital due to financial reasons.
    There were other islands used for pestilence deaths.
    Venice never had a population over 100,000 and there never was a psychiatry located on Poveglia.
    These rumors about these terrible stories occured for about 15 years ago and are simply not true.

    have a nice day.
