#2. Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, Sicily, Italy

#3. The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
A 230- foot wide crater that just won’t stop burning! Probably locals rightly call it the ‘Door to Hell’. How else would hell’s entryway look like? When the Soviet scientists were searching for oil back in 1971, they weren’t expecting a major disaster to happen. They hit a methane reservoir by accident which led to collapsing of the drilling platform which formed a dangerous crater.
#4. Suicide Forest, Japan
A deep and serene forest at the base of Mount Fuji, sounds so good. But what comes next takes away all the tranquillity. There are clothes, letters, tape and strings sprinkled in the deep of the woods. You may wonder why? It’s because this forest is popular for suicides. Over 247people tried to commit suicide here and out of them 54 were successful.
#5. Moundsville, West Virginia

In the early 20th century, the town was marked with deaths. Initially, a father and son died and then started a chain of deaths across the village. Some were murdered and some hanged themselves to death. The town now has only 20 residents but the creepy vibe remains.
#7. The Ridges, Ohio
