'Most haunted place in the world' up for auction
A bed remains in one of the dormitories in the psychiatric ward of the abandoned Hospital of Poveglia on Aug. 27, 2011, in Venice, Italy. The island of Poveglia, with its ruined hospital and plague burial grounds, is said to be the most haunted location in the world. The area is located within a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate but is deserted and off limits to the public. The dark and derelict forbidding shores are only minutes away from the glamour of the Venice Film Festival on the Lido.Marco Secchi / Getty Images
