The fact is that crossing the alley has become a classic test of courage for many people who are visiting the neighborhood.
The house of Aunt Toña
A tremendous house in ruins in the middle of the largest urban forest in the city is the perfect setting for the most gloomy stories, hence the legend of Aunt Toña. A lonely old woman who dedicated herself to adopt children and to which a fit of madness forced them to kill them and then end with her own live. These events always end up opening the doors of the afterlife and the forces of evil concentrated so much around the Third Section of Chapultepec, that several paranormal enthusiasts suffered accidents and at least one lost their lives around the house, or that is what is said.
The island of dolls
The channels of Xochimilco are one of those places that lend themselves to be a majestic scenery, or an incredibly gloomy place. Julián Santana decided on the second option and turned a small chinampa into one of the darkest attractions of Mexico City, the island of dolls.
