Overview

Highlights

  • Travel 180 meters underground to this impressive Roman Catholic church, built in the tunnels of a salt mine not far from Bogotá
  • See how the walls and floors were all carved into halite mountain itself, and so was the ceiling - don't forget to look up!
  • Dive into a treasure trove of historical mementos, religious items and old technology showcasing Colombia's awesome ancient roots

Description

Journey 180 meters underground to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, an impressive Roman Catholic church that was built in the tunnels of a salt mine. It's a beautiful Bogotá highlight that has long been a place of pilgrimage in Colombia.

Make like an intrepid explorer and head underground, 180 meters to this special Colombian place of worship.

Considered one of the greatest achievements of Colombian architecture, the Salt Cathedral's temple has three sections - which represent the birth, life and death of Jesus.

Check out the intricate hand-carved details in the halite rock and see why they call this salty spectacular a "jewel of modern architecture". See the 14 small chapels, each with a kneeling platform carved into the rocks - imagine how long that took!

Be wowed by the dome, the balcony and the Narthex Labyrinth, all as salty as the bottom of the sea. No need to test that theory by licking things (although we forgive you if you do).
