Description

Go 180 meters underground and let yourself be amazed by a world-class Colombian wonder: a majestic cathedral built inside the depths of the biggest salt rock reserve on earth. Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral deserves every piece of its fame. This is a place where the mysticism of Muiscas, Catholic symbology and engineering power, have come together in one place to guide its visitors on a magical tour through tunnels and vaults of impressive sizes.

This splendid work of engineering and art was opened to the public in 1995. On this tour you will enter an old salt mine that was adapted to become a cathedral. Here, the materials found underground have been manipulated by artists and sculptors, and with some help of amazing lighting effects, those things have given birth to an original interpretation of Catholic symbols. Learn from an expert guide about this process and the symbology behind the works of art you will see along the tour.

Upon exiting, we will head to the colonial village of Zipaquirá. We will walk through the main square, which is surrounded by several buildings that are declared national monuments. We will have time to taste the delicious baked goods of the region and we will have a stop at the local handicraft market.
