We love exploring creepy places. There are few adrenaline rushes better than walking through a graveyard at night. But there are some burial spots on planet Earth that have such unnerving reputations there’s no way in hell we’d consider spending a night there. The following are two such places…
The La Noria Cemetery in Chile
Far from civilization, in the deserts of Northern Chile, lies a small abandoned mining town that gives the term “ghost town” a new meaning. It has been reported that numerous people have traveled here and never returned. Welcome to La Noria…
In the late 1800’s La Noria was a booming mining town, but after a number of economic slumps the mines were shut down and the town was deserted. The residents of La Noria lived under terrible working conditions that bordered on slavery. Many, including children, suffered horrible deaths from accidents and poor living conditions. Their bodies were then buried in a makeshift cemetery just past the town.
The La Noria cemetery is by far one of the most frightening and surreal places one will ever see. Most of the shallow graves are open. What’s most disturbing is the fact that many of the graves have been dug up with open coffins and partially dressed skeletons lying within and outside of them. The idea that this would be the work of grave robbers is ridiculous – these were the bodies of slaves.
Was it some deranged person? Or something else? Locals in a neighboring town refuse to enter La Noria, the cemetery, or even the surrounding areas. Some locals will actually attempt to physically stop tourists from venturing into the town out of concern for their well-being.
It’s when the sun goes down that things start to get really terrifying. Reports of paranormal activity are common. Witnesses have reported hearing disembodied voices, screaming, footsteps walking towards them. Others have reported seeing apparitions and shadow people wondering the streets. Locals of Chile have also reported seeing children creeping around the abandoned schools at night.
You’ll more then likely see human bones scattered through out this massive ghost town. Just remember if you decide to venture to La Noria at night …the closest form of civilization is one gas station that’s 20 miles away.
Bachelors Grove Cemetery
Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Chicago is not for the faint of heart. This desecrated cemetery has been the epicenter of countless ghostly, demonic, and satanic ritual sightings. The now abandoned cemetery has gravestones that date back to the mid 1830’s. Many of the tombstones have been vandalized and a majority of the bodies have disappeared over the years. Of the 200 tombstones once on the grounds only around 20 are still fully intact.
Rumors of satanic rituals have been swirling around here since the 1960’s, which only adds to the eeriness of this cemetery. Then there’s the reports of the red streaks of light that follow you, orbs, and sounds of children crying, which are commonly witnessed and often times even caught on video by thrill seekers and ghost hunters.
Many people complain of sore throats, shortness of breath, and coughs that typically follow them home. This is believed to happen because the dark energy desires to hold onto the living at any cost, draining you of energy and weakening your immune system. There’s also the rapidly declining temperatures of at least 20 degree on a warm summer evening in some areas of the cemetery, which can turn the most hardcore skeptic into a believer.
