Strange Place: “Island of Dolls” is One of the Scariest Places on Earth

Dolls are hanging on the trees in the forest

"The island of Dolls"

“La isla de la Monecas” or “The Island of Dolls” is one of the scariest places  in the world.

It is located within an extensive group of canals, south of Mexico City, Mexico. Almost everyone’s inital reaction is “it must be beautiful because it’s an island off of mexico.”

This is completely wrong. This strange place is actually the opposite of beautiful.

Tourists explain the island as dark and silent with a feeling of chill. Almost every single tree is decorated with deformed and mutilated dolls. The dolls almost seem evil. As you walk the island, it supposedly feels like you are being watched at all times.

Scared yet?

I haven’t even told you the creepy part.

The island is supposedly haunted!

50 years ago, a man named Don Julian Santana left his wife and kids and moved to this island to live the rest of his life alone. When he was living there, the body of a dead little girl came floating up in one of the canals. Don Julian thought he had become haunted by her spirit.

He began to collect dolls and decorate the island with them. He would trade vegetables and fruits in exchange for any dolls. The dolls were believed to be used by Don Julian as a shrine for the spirit that haunted him. Over the 50 years that he lived there, he continuously collected dolls and decorated them all over the island, until he died.

Some natives of Mexico believe that Don Julian went crazy. They think that Don Julian would throw the dolls into the canals and save them as if they were real babies. His family said this was not true. They continue to tell people that it was a way of him coping with the haunting of the little girl.

In 2001, Don Julian was found dead by his nephew. He found him in the same canal that Don Julian supposedly found the little girl.

After his death, tourists have said that they heard dolls whispering as they passed them. People have become so superstitious with this island that they believe you must bring a gift to the island for the dolls in order to ease the spirits.

This was an easy add to our strange place collection, and probably our scariest addition to the strange place collection.

    This so weird. I am going to have to take a trip down there to see this place. Very cool. My wife believes in ghosts, and maybe after my visit to this island I will be the same.
