ZONE OF PEACE

           
                                   
  In 2004, The Charco del Ingenio was sanctified as a Peace Zone by the Dalai Lama, Tibetan leader and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, during his visit to Mexico. Five Peace Zones were designated in the country, places free of violence and arms, dedicated to the conservation of nature and community development.
