The Most Horrible Houses

Human imagination has always been rich and creative. Sometimes we are capable to such flights of thoughts that even the goosebumps are appearing on the skin.

It isn’t only concerning the activity, but some other spheres as well, for example an art, particularly architecture.

Everybody knows that there are some buildings, which are famous because of their history, sinister appearanceand exciting and at the same time terrified emotions.

Today we are going to speak about five of them.

Winchester Mansion, San Jose, CA 

Winchester Mansion, San Jose, CA 

Magic Winchester Mansion is a huge building, which is associated with a large amount of prejudices.

Many years ago one fortune teller said Sarah Winchester, the heiress to the company making a firearm, that she would be chased by the ghosts of people killed by that kind of weapons. The only escape was to go away from Connecticut to the west and to begin the house building for living.

But Sarah Winchester could not complete it during her lifetime. The great construction began in 1884 in San Jose and lasted for 38 years until Sarah died, because of her nervous disorders.

Today, as it is said, the ghosts of her mental madness are seen inside the walls of the house: along the stairs leading to the ceiling, near the doors that open in the middle of the wall, in spider motifs and in massive chandeliers bizarre shapes. 

Abbey of Thelema, Sicily 

Abbey of Thelema, Sicily 

Aleister Crowley, probably, could be called one of the most evil occultists in the world, and his stone house, stuffed with sacred pagan frescoes hat building once served as the world capital of satanic orgies, at least all thought in such a way in the 20-th of the XIX century.
Abbey turned into a nest of free love. Newcomers had to spend the night in the “room of horrors” where inflated by drugs they were looking at the murals depicting heaven, earth and hell.

Today Abbey is half destroyed and overgrown with grass, but several murals with the help of which Crowley terrified his followers have been still preserved.
