The following stories should be considered folk tales and nothing more. Those that seek to discover for themselves are advised not to visit the listed locations without permission of the owner.


Maroussi Cemetery

A lot of people claim to have seen a crying girl outside of the cemetery at Maroussi, as they pass with their cars. When they try to see that little girl again using the car’s mirror, the little girl is not there. Some people say that her name was Anna.

Penteli: Daveli’s Cave

This cave holds history of paranormal activity, which was first recorded by many Ancient Greece residents and, at that time, considered as acts of the Gods. Many reports of UFOs, strange creatures, and paranormal activity, probably due to electromagnetic fields in the area. Phenomena are not as frequent now, however it is a great site for novice ghost hunters



Boutari's Fantaxometoho Estate Winery. In about the 1880s, the story goes, a local farmer began reporting strange sounds and visions around his cottage at night.

Skeptics believe he was just trying to drive off young men who were raiding his farm as a convenient source of free food; others claim it was the ghosts of ancient Minoans.

But in support of the legend, the fields don't seem to have been believed to be haunted, only the 300-year-old cottage. If this was just a negative public relations campaign to scare off raiders, it seems that it would have made more sense to spread the story that the surrounding fields were haunted as well.



Ioannis Koukoutsis Walks on cemetery grounds after twelve. Legend has it that he went crazy after he had finished work at his butcher shop, once he arrived home he brought with him a razor sharp butcher knife and decapitated his wife as she slept peacefully in there room on the left side of the bed, unfortunately no one had heard neither of there screams or moans. Once finished his execution he committed. After school his daughter Vaso and her friend who has asked for her name to not be revealed, had just arived at the house to witness the bloody massacre. Till this day Ioannis’s ghost walks the cemetery grounds.


The Undead

Not exactly haunted, this island is a bizarre burial ground for those suspected of vampirism in Greece (known as vrykolakes, Greek mythology states a vampire is able to walk the Earth during day or night, spreading evil). Somehow, the people on this island became known for dealing with the vrykolakes, and thus it is now nicknamed Island of the Vampires. Superstitious Greeks would bring the bodies of alleged vampires there to be buried.
