The Island of the Dolls – Mexico
The island of dolls is a small island in Xochimilco district, in Mexico. The island is famous for having old broken dolls tied to tree branches and trunks. They were hung there by the sole, and now deceased resident of the island called Julián Santana Barrera. He claimed that he collected the dolls from canals and hung them to keep away evil spirits and make peace with the spirit of a dead girl he once found. It is also stated that he believed that at night, the dolls come to life and walk around the island. The island is accessible by boat, but probably too scary for most people, especially after dark!
