1 Castle of Good Hope - Cape Town, South Africa
Built in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company, the Castle of Good Hope has long been haunted. The very first reported paranormal occurrence was in 1915 when the apparition of a tall gentleman took place on one of the castle's ramparts. With time, the apparitions continued and the man was seen jumping off the side of one of the castle walls and walking between the bastions Leerdam and Oranje.
Back in the 1700s, a soldier was found hanging from the bell rope in the bell tower of the castle. The bell tower was later sealed off, but the bell continues to strike off its own accord to this day. The ghost of a black dog has also been sighted in the castle and it is said that the ghost pounces on unsuspecting visitors and then simply vanishes into thin air.
