The Central Courtyard at Doge’s Palace..

This Palace is very old, just like other palace, inside is a museum displaying the doge’s chamber, the military stuffs like armours and weapons, painting, artwork, etc. And the most creepy part on the walkways towards the underground prison.. We feel the eerie atmosphere over there.. I honestly never know what happen before over there, but i just simply didn’t want to snap any photo from there.. :'( So freaking creepy over there..

End up when i came back from europe and told my friend i went inside the prison, she told me that inside prison long time ago there were a lot of prisoner died. When Venice had the high tide and flooded, they left all the prisoner locked underground and let them died.. T.T 
Ahh.. really creepy, i really got goosebump just only heard the story..
