Haunted Colosseum of Rome
The Colosseum is considered one of the most haunted places in Europe. And, is home to numerous ghostly spirits.
The magnificent structure still gives that eerie ominous feel to the place when people visit. Even though the events that have happened there happened thousands of years earlier.
Visitors report strange happenings when visiting the site. Such a being touched, pushed, the sounds of weeping, moaning, swords clashing, animals noises, and the sound of a roaring crowd. They've seen ghostly figures walking up and down the stairs. Figures seated as if watching the spectacle down below. Roman soldiers standing at the exits.
This is a site of very raw emotions not just the humans, Gladiators, Christians, executions. But, also all the animals that were held below in dark chambers.
It's said that Saint Telemachus and Saint Ignatius of Antioch have died there.
Personally I'm very surprise we don't hear more about the hauntings at the Colosseum. Or, paranormal investigations going on. Maybe, because it's more outdoors then indoors. But, I think this would be a very interesting place to investigate.
