Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Barcelona with T. Frohock

Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Barcelona with T. Frohock

Come on boys and ghouls!  It's time to hop on Route 666 for a spooktacular Paranormal Road Trip.

This week's stop is Barcelona, Spain and our special guide is T. Frohock, author of the Los Nefilim urban fantasy series, including the new release IN MIDNIGHT'S SILENCE.

Barcelona's Top 5 Spooky Places

Poltergeists, ghosts, demonic possessions—Barcelona has it all. There are numerous walking tours of Barcelona’s haunted sites. I haven’t had the opportunity to visit Barcelona, yet; although, I hope to go one day and the walking ghost tours are at the top of my bucket-list.

Here are five hauntings in Barcelona that I’ve read about online:

Comte Arnau. The Comte Arnau is a famous Catalonian ghost. A rich nobleman of the 13th century, the Comte committed so many grievous sins that he was condemned to forever ride a black horse, which is chased through the night by hellhounds. Fire pours from the eyes and mouth of the Comte as he continues his sorrowful ride into eternity.

The Mercat de Sant Antoni. Here it said that death sentences were carried out for many years, and that the souls continue to cry in pain all night long. The hauntings were so real that no one would build on the site after 1855. Because no one could sell the area, the government built the market in order to utilize the vacant lot and incorporate it into the city’s landscape.

Gran Teatre del Liceu (opera house). The land where the Grand Theater at Liceu was built is rumored to have been the scene of executions during the Middle Ages. As the result of this, the ground was allegedly cursed. In spite of the legends, the Gran Teatre del Liceu was built on this very ground, and according to some, suffered the consequences for defying the curse. Built in 1847, the opera house was damaged by fire in 1861. Another incident involved anarchists in 1893—they bombed the theater and killed twenty people. In 1994, another fire completely destroyed the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

20 Carrer de Josep Torres. The house is decorated with devil’s heads, because urban legend has it that the owner, Agustín Atzerias, became bankrupt due to housing reforms. In a fit of despair, Atzerias made a deal with the devil. He sold his soul in order to win the lottery, and when he won, he decorated his home to honor his benefactor. Devils’ heads were carved in stone, and hellish scenes were painted on the walls. Sometime after Atzerias died, the paintings were removed. The sculptures remain, and according to some, Atzerias’ screams of agony haunt the house at night.

Carrer de Francisco Giner. An entire building came under paranormal attack in 1935. This attack appears to have been documented by both the press and the police, lasting for approximately one week. Numerous people heard loud noises as if something struck the walls during the night. Reports of furniture flying through the air and other nocturnal disturbances were recorded. Some believe that a child by the name of Joan Monroig, who was ill at the time, created the poltergeist that lived in the building, but no one really know for certain.

Thank you Teresa for giving us such a haunting tour of Barcelona!
