Zipaquira Salt Cathedral Tour

A temple carved in salt 180 meters underground

Zipaquira is a town internationally known for having one of the most visited touristic wonders in Colombia: its majestic salt cathedral. The cathedral makes part of a salt mine that is 180 meters (590 feet) underground.

Live the unique experience of visiting an underground church built in an amazing and sublime space: the magnificent Salt Cathedral, located in Zipaquirá. Carved from the depths of the largest salt deposit in Colombia (and one of the largest in America), the Salt Cathedral is a memorable and inspiring place. The Muiscas were the first to discover and take advantage of the enormous salt wealth of the place, but only until the 20th century was the current Cathedral consolidated.
