This Deserted Turkish Village Is Filled With Hundreds Of Creepy Disney-like Castles

Builders once envisioned Burj Al Babas as a getaway for investors from the Persian Gulf: a village full of Disney-style, castle-like villas. But that was never to be. Instead, every single one of the destination’s chateaus sits empty, together forming a creepy ghost town in the mountains of Turkey.

Traditionally, a ghost town has a past – and it usually includes a once-thriving population that is now no more. People will have most likely left such settlements when the industry that supported them left too. For instance, mills or mines might have previously drawn in workers – but the areas’ economies may have tanked when the resources were depleted.
