I have a Photo that you might be interested in. It was taken at a abandoned castle near Soave. I have no history on this castle. My family and I were just exploring.

I wanted to see how close I could get to the castle. Stopped and took two pictures of the same gate and one did not turn out the way I expected. There was nothing in the photo when I took it. I got to the car and...there it was. Smoke with a face (skull). Like I said don't know the castle name or history.

Maria's reply:

The castle looks highly creepy and the photo is indeed very strange. I wonder if there could be some technical explanation for it - does anyone out there have any ideas?

I was contacted a little while ago by a producer of a well known ghost hunting show in the USA about haunted castles in Italy and they were going to do a show on the subject. I suppose with all the centuries of history Italy has it would be the perfect place for ghosts if they exist.

P.S. On another note Soave (click here for a great video and more) is a really lovely place. The main Soave castle situated above the town is amazing - not at all creepy. At least most of the time. Maybe visit in summer.
