    Barcelona is the Spookiest Place to Spend Halloween

    Learn why Barcelona is the place to be if you wanna get freaky on All Hallow’s Eve, with Stoke Travel’s Halloween Ghost Hunt, click this link to book your limited place

    If you’re intrigued by the skin-prickling and the spine-tingling, there’s no better place to spend Halloween than Barcelona. The city’s serpentine streets are so riddled with sightings, secrets and unsolved mysteries that author Sylvia Lagarda-Mata wrote an entire book, Fantasmes de Barcelona, on the city’s frightening phenomena. Below lies just a taste of Barcelona’s most chilling tales to get you psyched for some paranormal sightings…

    The singing ghosts of La Boqueria

    You will have walked past La Boqueria market on Las Ramblas even if you haven’t been inside, but did you know that this tourist favourite rests on the graves of murdered Carmelite monks? The Sant Josep convent once stood on that site, where it is said the congregation was one night visited by the risen, singing corpses of their fallen brothers. Ten days later, on the 25th of July 1835, the convent was attacked and burned, and the monks slaughtered. A different kind of meat market, you might say. Once night falls on the the 25th of July each year, you can still hear the monks singing…

    Carrer de Flor de Lliri – Spain’s Wolf Creek?

    Backpackers, go take a look if you dare. Carrer de Flor de Lliri was home to several inns for travellers in the 1950s, but some who came for a short stay never left. Numerous travellers disappeared without a trace from these inns, never to be found or officially declared dead. All those who wander are not lost… unless they stayed on Flor de Lliri in the fifties.

    The haunted Gran Teatre del Liceu

    Be impassioned at the Liceu says the website, but if you go see a steamy show you might get a little more heat than you bargained for. The well-known theatre is built on a site which used to put on a different kind of show, namely public executions. “They” say the site is haunted ‘til this day. Is it true, Liceu? Well, the place has gone up in flames not once but twice, and suffered an anarchist bomb attack, since its construction in 1847. In the words of Nelly, it’s gettin’ hot in hurr.

    The ghost stations of the Metro

    Have you ever noticed on your daily commute that there are some stations at which the train never stops? Barcelona is home to several eerily empty “ghost stations” that sit deserted while the people of Barcelona pass by. The “Gaudi” near Sagrada Familia was finished but never opened. Correus sits deserted on the L4 between Jaume I and Barceloneta, as does Bordeta on the L1 between Mercat Nou and Santa Eulàlia. If you look closely as you pass by, you might see the figures that are rumoured to appear on the “empty” platforms at night…

    Enriqueta Marti

    In the 1900s, Barcelona was a city of extremes. As always, the “Pearl of the Mediterranean” played home to a wealthy aristocratic class, but also to thousands of illiterate immigrants, prostitutes and injured and unemployed war veterans. The red light district of El Raval was a slum where many of these people lived, in overcrowded houses or on the streets. This was the Barcelona that the young Enriqueta, who came to be known as the Vampiresa de Raval, had moved to in search of a living… how did she earn that nickname over the next 20 years? Join Stoke this Halloween for a guided ghost tour of the city’s most sinister historical sites to find out, and finish off at the freak-fest that is the city’s biggest Halloween party. There’s much more where this came from…
