The town of Belchite is perhaps the scariest town of all in Spain. Located south of Zaragoza, it was completely destroyed during the Spanish Civil War in 1937 and today it remains practically the same as when it was abandoned after the bombing it suffered. Although it remains uninhabited, the skeletal remains of its church, houses, and school are said to be home to more than a few otherworldly spirits. In fact, several ghost hunters have been able to record sounds and voices after spending the (cold) night sleeping rough in the town.
Ochate It is another abandoned town of which the legend exists, as a result of an article written by one of the locals, Prudencio Muguruza in 1982, of how suffered three epidemics what toThey took the lives of all its inhabitants.
For years the legend was fed by the testimony of people who said they had heard voices in the village and in particular that of a woman and a girl who said «kanpora» which in Basque means «come out».
However, in 2007 a book called “Ochate, reality legend of the cursed town” was published, in which it was explained that no disease had left the town without a population, but that in reality the town had remained almost “in the middle of nowhere” and therefore, its inhabitants abandoned it to go to the city.
