XOCHIMILCO, MEXICO CITY - MARCH 27: A doll grasps the decapitated head of another doll on Isla de las Muñecas on March 27, 2016 in Xochimilco, Mexico City.
Hidden in the Xochimilco canals is Mexico’s creepiest tourist attraction - Isla de las Muñecas - Island of Dolls. When the island’s only occupant discovered the corpse of a drowned girl in the canal, he began hanging up dolls all over the island to ward off her spirit. A two hour trajinera ride down the canals, the island is only accessible by boat and has evolved into a terrifying destination for explorers. Photographer Sebastian Perez Lira took the ride from his home in Mexico City to capture the spooky dolls on camera.
