Full description
Travel for 2 hours north of Bogotá to the city of Zipaquirá, where you will visit the renowned Salt Cathedral. Known as a must-visit in Colombia, it is a monument of faith that has become an architectural piece like no other.  Explore the Roman Catholic church built in the ancient hollows of a salt mine, 180 meters below ground. Marvel at the cathedral’s architecture built within the mine’s remaining caverns and tunnels.  You will have 2 hours inside the Cathedral to visit all the sights as the audio guide explains about the process of salt formation, the architecture, and the mining process within every detail. Inside the mine, there are different pieces of stonework and sculpture that, due to their size and illumination, make this spectacular wonder an engineering jewel, famous around the world. You may also visit the light show at the very end of the tunnels before returning to Bogotá.

The Cathedral is a must when traveling to Bogotá, the site is impressive, very well curated and awe inspiring. The tour only gets 4 stars from me because even though it says it starts at 8 am, it really doesn’t start until 9 am. Counting that with traffic it takes over 3 hrs rounds trip, you only get about 2.5 hrs between the cathedral and a quick pick of the city center. I would still recommend, just beware.

Our driver Carlos Garcia was very attentive, helpful and informative. I love having a small group (just the three of us in my case) and how everyone respected each other’s time and was punctual. The catedral was impressive. It’s hard to imagine salt is from these hidden places underneath the mountain ranges! An informative short movie is included in the entrance ticket. Highly recommend the experience!

Excellent choice! My Guide was Carlos (believe his last name is Garcia)! Knowledgeable, good senses of humor! We were three ladies traveling on the same vehicle (two Brazilian and myself)! Even though Portuguese may sound as Spanish is not! Carlos had the patience to speak slowly to them! Kudos for him! I just regret not booking the two tours together; nevertheless if you choose this one is an excellent choice! They did stop at the “Marroquí Castle”, which was not included but I’m glad hey did! I’ll definitely used them again on my next trip to Bogota!
