The Island of the Dolls is a true ghost story about a scary place in Mexico that is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl. It is also known as Isla de las Munecas.
The Island of the Dolls is located just south of Mexico City, between the canals of Xochimico. It is famous as being one of the scariest places in the world.
The island is covered with the severed heads and dismembered bodies of creepy old dolls. They hang from the branches of trees, their glass eyes staring at anyone who passes by. At night, things become even more disturbing. Some people claim the dolls move their heads and arms and open their eyes. Others say that they have heard the dolls whispering to each other in the darkness.
They say that, years ago, a man named Don Julian Santana lived alone on the island. One day, he found the dead body of a young girl floating face-down in the canal. She had drowned.
He believed that her ghost haunted the island. The man collected dolls and hung them from the trees to appease the dead girl’s restless spirit. He thought this would make the little girl happy and keep evil spirits at bay. As time went by, he came to believe that the dolls were possessed by the spirits of the dead.
The story took an even more sinister turn in 2001 when Don Julian was found dead under mysterious circumstances. He drowned in the canal at exactly the same spot where he found the little girl years before. Some people say that the old man was murdered by his dolls.
Today, the Island of the Dolls is a tourist destination. People come from all over the world to see the creepy and bizarre decorations.
