Island of the dolls


Isla de las Munecas (Island of the dolls) is a terrifying island off the coast of Mexico. The place is full of creepy old dolls.

Legend has it that a young girl drowned off the island 50 years ago. Shortly after her death, the island’s sole inhabitant, a hermit named Don Julian Santana Barrera, began finding dolls in the canal. In an effort to ward of evil spirits, Barrera hung the dolls from trees.

Barrera drowned in 2001. Oo, spooky.
