1. Isle of Povegliya
A small island located between Venice and Lido in the Venetian lagoon in the north of Italy. Over the centuries Povegliya was a refuge, a place of exile, and a dumping ground for disease and death. In 1348, the bubonic plague overtook Venice and like many other small islands became a colony Povegliya quarantine. Fearing for the rampant spread of disease, Venice exiled to many citizens with symptoms of the disease. In the 20th century the island was again used as a quarantine station, but in 1922 the existing buildings have been converted into a hospital for the mentally ill. This continued until 1968, while the hospital is not closed, and the island again became uninhabited. The island is famous legends about ghosts – the victims of the plague, as well as a crazy doctor psychiatric hospitals who allegedly tortured patients.
