The haunting of the Reina Sofia Museum

4 posts in this topic

Keith Pattison de Bellasis: In the mid-16th century King Phillip II of Spain made the decision to bring all of the various hospitals, almshouses and other charitable facilities together in a single location under a single administration. The area chosen was known as “El Olivar de Atocha” (the Atocha Olive Grove), where a hospital for the poor was already located. Despite the prosaic name the area was already notorious as a place where the destitute would be abandoned without any means of support to die ignominiously of starvation or disease and to be interred at State expense to protect the wealthier Burghers from the spread of cholera, Black Death and the bubonic plague.

I should think that a good ghost story and a chance for "overnight investigations" would provide a rather tidy income for a museum!

I know that the "haunted Edinburgh" tours are quite popular in Scotland.
