The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is a Roman Catholic Church like no others. It is an underground sanctuary built within the tunnels of a salt mine. For its concept and architecture it is unique in the world.

This wonderful salt mine is in the town of Zipaquira, in Cundinamarca, only 48 kilometers from Bogotá.

It was declared the First Wonder of Colombia in 2007 and has received more than 13 million visitors from all around the world.

Once you enter you can smell the minerals and after a short period of walking in the dark you can see the multicolored lights reflecting over the crystals and the beautiful sculptures carved by miners and famous sculptors.

If you happen to be in Bogota, learning Spanish at Learn More Than Spanish, The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, is definitely a must see.
