You Can Spend The Night Inside This Former Colorado Monastery That’s Loaded With Paranormal Activity

Colorado has its fair share of haunted locations, yet none are quite as intriguing as the Abbey. Tucked away in Cañon City, this historic building originally served as a monastery when it was built in 1924. By 2005, however, the monastery dissolved and the monks eventually moved away. Today, guests visit this historic landmark to admire its stunning Gothic Revival architecture, yet some experience something else rather unexpected. Holy Cross Abbey is considered to be among the most haunted places in Colorado, for reasons that aren’t easy to explain. If you’re curious to experience the darker side of this historic landmark, you can sign up for an evening tour led by Ghost Hunts USA and, if you’re feeling brave, spend the night inside the building afterward.
