The Mexican doll Island

Welcome to la Isla de las Muñecas – the Island of the Dolls in Mexico!

According to the legend, Don Julian Santana Barrera, who lived there, once saw a drowned girl floating by his home. It was never proved that Julian found a body, but his response to the vision was very real. Soon after Don Julian witnessed the drowned child, he spotted a doll in the water.

To honor the dead girl’s spirit, and protect his home from further tragedy, Don Julian placed the toy in a nearby tree. But one doll offering was not enough. Every day, a new plastic doll drifted by and so on. Don Julian fished each doll out of the canal and arranged them in the trees.

Some witnesses claim they had heard the dolls whispering to each other, while others who were on a boat near the island said the dolls lured them to come down to the island.

The island is located south of Mexico City, between the canals of Xochimico. If you have the guts to visit a place creepy and morbid as this one, write us how your journey was in the comments down bellow.
