In Italy there is an island of ghosts called Povela. Here in the Middle Ages, they brought the corpses of those who died from the plague.

Previously, anthracite was mined here, the best grade of coal, which burns very slowly. After coal deposits ignited 50 years ago, they cannot be extinguished until now. As a result, the surface of the land in the city was covered with cracks, spewing acrid smoke. Residents were evacuated. It is assumed that coal in this place will burn for another 250 years.
