The Puerta de paz (Door of Peace) is a giant public sculpture made by Yitzhak Danziger for the 1968 Ruta de la Amistad. The work depicts a broken blue pentagon inter-connected with a yellow quadrangle that reaches some 7.5 meters in height. It was station # 15 on the original route.
The Puerta de Paz was restored in 2004 after spending many of decades in isolated abandonment. It was moved a mere 100 meters to distance it from a nearby water tank, and in anticipation of the construction of the Periférico highway. Many of the works in the Friendship Route required much more extensive re-accommodation.
The Embassy of Israel in Mexico participated in the 2004 restoration, and later maintenance.
