Developed in 1800s, This Island Paradise Hides a Deadly Secret that Scares Rich People

This charming-looking island in Italy called Isola La Gaiola is believed to be freakishly cursed. Since the 1800s, there has been a series of owners of the island, most of them wealthy. Each one of them encountered terrible misfortunes like premature deaths or financially ruined by the time they owned the island.

Right now the beautiful Isola La Gaiola sits alone abandoned in fear, waiting for the next brave soul to own and inhabit it.

See for yourself.
