Craigynos


Craig-y-nos Castle (English: Rock of the Night), is a Victorian-Gothic country house in Powys, Wales, United Kingdom. Built on parkland beside the River Tawe in the upper Swansea Valley, it is located on the southeastern edge of the Black Mountain. The castle, formerly owned by opera singer Adelina Patti, is now a boutique hotel, catering, conferencing and entertainment venue.

The castle is said to be subject to strong paranormal phenomena and haunted by the ghosts of Patti; her second husband, French tenor Ernesto Nicolini; and the object of her affection, the composer Gioachino Rossini. Unexplained presences taking many different forms have allegedly been experienced by visitors all over the castle. Visitors have also reported experiencing breathing difficulties and of feeling a lingering presence of patients who were hospitalized there while suffering from tuberculosis.

The Top Children's Ward is the most active room in the castle. With the recovery rate of TB being so low, many children entered the castle at an extremely young age and never left. Many full apparitions have allegedly been seen in this room and some investigators claim to have interacted on numerous occasions, although no evidence has been produced to justify the claims. Again, minor anomalies are regular occurrences, along with the sounds of children's footsteps, bouncing balls and giggles.

A sighting of a dark semi-transparent lady on the stairs was investigated and discovered to be due to a statuette on the roof of the castle which casts a shadow resembling a lady when the sun starts to set.
