In the northern hills of Chile lays an old abandoned mining town which brings with it a true Ghost Town story. The cemetery opposite is where the towns original inhabitants were buried, they are said to rise from the graves and walk through their towns as they once did.

Le Noira was a large mining town in the 19th Century, when economics forced the town closed it was left deserted, but it seems that the tale only begins there!

The management were said to have treat the workers so badly when it closed they they killed those they could not trust to talk, any they thought that might be a potential tell-tale were murdered by the management. They killed the unfortunates and then buried them in the cemetery opposite where many were already the victims of terrible accidents.

This particularly gruesome tale may have weight to it as there have been sentimental items such as photographs found left around the home.

Nearby locals have been known to physically stop unwanted tourists. The shallow graves are scattered, the sand that was used to cover them has blown away over the years. Partially dressed skeletons in various conditions now lay in their semi-buried graves or in some cases not in them at all.

The poor people of La Noira have not been truly allowed to rest in peace.
