Aruba Peace Labyrinth Gets a Makeover
By Rona Coster
The rebirth of the Aruba Peace Labyrinth became a reality thanks to 70+ Aruba Doet volunteers. Special thanks to Dick, Magaly & Gea Souge for their efforts.
The original labyrinth is situated in the Chartres Cathedral near Paris, France, constructed between 1194 and 1220, and has been replicated all over the world. The Aruba Peace Labyrinth was created in 2005, and over the years, thousands of people have benefited from walking its pathways and enjoying the soothing vibrations of the surrounding nature.
May you find inner peace and healing while walking the labyrinth, located just behind the Alto Vista Church.
