Do You Dare to Go on Gaiola the Damned Island

Over the years many rich people were owners of this island, Gaiola, but back than each one of them perceived series of unfortunate accidents.

Every owned of this beautiful island, Gaiola, mysteriously caught themselves in many different bad events after buying the island, at first sight, Italian paradise. Beside it charming look, it seems that the island is nothing in similar.

This island is gloomily damned. Nowadays, Gaiola which is less then 30 meters away from the Naples (Napoli) bay, is empty, abandoned and all alone. This island is so special because of its unusual shape, actually, it is consisted of two smaller islands which are connected by a stone bridge. On both those islands there is one lonely cottage.
