3 spooky places where only the most daring tourists go

While some tourists expect to rest from their holidays, others go to creepy places in search of extreme sensations. Fortunately for the latter, there are a lot of such sites around the world. Read more about some of them in the material “DIP“.

Island of the Dolls (Mexico)

In the middle of the 20th century, the hermit Julian Santana Barrera lived on the island. He collected dolls by rescuing them from trash cans. With the help of this ritual, Barrera wanted to calm the soul of a girl who drowned nearby – Julian was a witness to the tragedy. In the late 90s, journalists became aware of the island, Barrera’s hobby, and the whole world. After that, tourists began to visit the Island of the Dolls en masse, bringing with them dolls as a gift to Julian.

In 2001, a man was found dead in the same place where a girl mysteriously died. Since then, his nephew has been watching the island.

Now the dolls are hung all over the island, mostly in trees. Over time, many became moldy, weathered, and left without details. To appease the dolls, tourists bring sweets. Children and the faint of heart are not recommended to visit the island.

Today, the catacombs are part of the Carnavale Museum and, if desired, tourists can visit them. Not only does the very sight of the catacombs evoke horror, but there are also many terrible stories associated with them. According to one of them, Philibert Asper, the caretaker of the church of Val de Grace, tried to explore the tunnels of the quarries in search of wine cellars but got lost in the labyrinth, and his corpse was found only 11 years later.
