Brasillia - Brasillia City Hall - The original city hall was temporarily used as a morgue for thousands of dead bodies. Later on it burned down and a new city hall was built on the same property. Due to all the dead bodies and deaths from the fire, the building is said to be very haunted. One night an employee of city hall was working late, and to his surprise, the office door shut by itself and locked. On another night, a person working late claimed to hear file cabinet doors opening and closing. When she investigated however, no one was there.

Itanhaém - The Dream Beach - People who live near the Dream Beach have complained that, in the middle of the night, while sleeping, were awake by a strange and terrible noise, as if there was someone standing near them, breathing hard above their faces. In that beach there are rocks where people walk on by day. One night a couple in a honeymoon went there to look at the sea, when suddenly a big and strong wave hit the rocks and dragged them down. Their bodies were never found, but at night, whoever walks there will see a couple coming out of the sea, all wet and in state of decomposition.
