Some places in this world are not for casual visitors. The Island of the Dolls is one such eerie place that is full of creepy looking dolls which were placed here by some strange turn of events.
Nestled between the canals of Xochimico (two-hour canal ride from Mexico City) lies the chinampa, or floating garden, which was once owned by the Don Julián Santana Barrera. Don Julián was the native of the La Asunción neighborhood and was a lonely soul. According to the local legends, one day he found a corpse of a young girl drowned in the river along with her doll. The incident had a deep impact on him and as a symbol of respect, he hung the doll on a tree.
