A deserted leper colony, convent and hospital is slowly being reclaimed by the jungles on Chacachacare Island, which lies close to Trinidad, B.W.I.
For many years the Dominican sisters ministered to those who had been exiled to this island due to having contracted leprosy.
The echoes of the past are easily envisioned among the ruins where so many came to live and die.
For many years there have been reports of ghosts, especially the White Lady of Chacachacare, who is supposed to be the apparition of a nun who committed suicide. There are other reports of supernatural encounters since at least 2,000 lepers lived on the island during its 60 some years as a Hansenian Settlement.
