Between the canals of Xochimico, just south of Mexico City, is a little island with a grim history that was never meant to be a popular tourist attraction. Isla de las Munecas is the name of the island.
It is dedicated to the lost soul of a young woman who suffered an untimely death under peculiar circumstances.
Although there are thousands of people living nearby, this tiny island is home to hundreds of creepy dolls. Trees are decorated with their severed limbs, severed heads, and blank eyes.
The dolls are claimed to be haunted by the ghost the girl who was found drowned on this island in mysterious circumstances many years ago.
According to local lore, the dolls move their heads, arms, and even eyes.
Some witnesses claim that they heard the dolls whispering to one another, while others who were on a boat close to the island believe that the dolls tried to lure them there.
Don Julian Santana Barrera was the caretaker of the island. The story goes that Julian found the girl drowned but wasn't able to resuscitate her
Julian then noticed a floating doll close to the canals. The doll most likely belonged to the girl.
As a sign of respect for the girl's spirit, he took the doll and hung it from a tree.
Julian began hanging more dolls in an attempt to satisfy the girl's ghost, who was allegedly haunting him.
He continued to gather creepy dolls and hung them all over the island. afterwords he started to think that the dolls were actually all possessed by the ghosts of dead girls.
According to those close to him, it was as if Julian was driven by some unseen force that completely changed him.
After 50 years of collecting dolls and hanging them on the island, Julian was found dead, drowned in the same spot where the girl did.
Many people on the island believe that Julian has joined the other spirits of the island.
