If you want to take a witchcraft inspired vacation, then there are a variety of places you can visit that will delight you with their spiritual histories and overall aesthetics. From places that we all know about, to little-known destinations, the following list of witchy places to visit will inspire your next spiritual holiday.
First on the list of witchy places to visit, is Salem, Massachusetts. Salem is by far the most popular vacation spot for witches and lovers of the occult. That’s because, as known by most people, this was the setting of the notorious witch trials of 1692. While visiting Salem, you can enjoy a variety of kitschy sights that capitalize happily off the dark past of the area. However, if you want to do something a little different, a spooky walk through the forest in one of the parks is sure to inspire your inner witch.
Catemaco, Veracruz, Mexico
If you’re looking for a witchy destination “South of the Border,” then look no further than Catemaco in Veracruz, Mexico. This location is historically known to be home to brujas who are very active practitioners of witchcraft, whether you’re seeking a blessing or a curse.
Boscastle, Cornwall, England
If you want to experience an enriching and educational witchy vacation, then check out Boscastle in Cornwall, England. It’s home to the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, which boasts an impressive collection of artifacts and so much more related to the history of witchcraft. Considering that England (and much of Europe) was historically home to witch burnings and trials, this museum has a lot to offer in regards to that dark part of witchcraft history.
Suicide Forest, Japan
More properly named Aokigahara Forest, this place earned its gloomy nickname because of all the suicides that have taken place within it. Because of this dark cloud that hovers over the area, Suicide Forest has become the subject of stories of hauntings, demonic entities and witchcraft. If you’re brave enough to visit, this could be a pretty interesting place to add to your witchy trip checklist.
