La Isla de las Muñecas is a bizarre tourist attraction by anyone's standards. Old mutilated dolls adorn almost every tree growing on the island, in silent tribute to the spirit of the child. According to legend, three young girls were playing and one of them drowned. A hermit named Don Julian Santana chose the remote island for his home and honored the spirit of the dead child by making a natural altar out of discarded dolls. He would bring them to the island and tie them to the trees.
