Private Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá Tour from Bogotá
From US$119.00

Discover the subterranean Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá on a half-day trip from Bogotá. On arrival in the colonial town of Zipaquirá, you’ll descend to the underground tunnels of a salt mine to behold the Salt Cathedral, a magical structure illuminated by blue lighting. Learn about the history of the monument from your guide and then visit select Colombian villages renowned for their handicrafts and natural splendor. Round-trip transport from Bogotá is included.

What to Expect
Near Bogotá, Zipaquirá is a colonial town known for its beauty, but its typical architecture is not its principal attraction. 180 meters under the ground there is an engineering jewel, famous around the world: The Salt Cathedral.

See this space that will leave you breathless. Inside the mine there are different pieces of work that, due its size and illumination, make this place a must-see destination. Travel around fascinating small villages from the Bogotá Savanna besides Zipaquirá, like Nemocón and Guatavita. These cities offer typical handcrafts and scenarios with exceptional beauty.
