Poveglia: The Island of Ashes

Ghost Stories in the Sunlight

Oct 12 2023 • 39 mins

Legend has it that the island of Poveglia is made of 50% dirt, and 50% human ashes. Whilst this might not be entirely true, the horrors and death the island has seen very much are, and their echoes remain to this day. Join us on a trip to the abandoned island. Just remember to bring your own snacks.

Oh, and Happy Friday the 13th.
