Visit an underground Salt Cathedral!

There are a variety of day trips from Bogota and a tour of the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is one of the most spectacular! During this Bogota day trip, we will take you to the small, traditional town of Zipaquira, home of the stunning structure built inside the extensive caves of an old salt mine. The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is a true testimony to the miners' faith in a higher power and one of the most notable achievements in Colombian architecture.

The salt mine is unlike any other in the world. It opened in 1995 for tourism and represents an eclectic mix of religion and architecture. Although the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is a religious structure, non-Catholics will still appreciate this Salt Cathedral tour because it explores Colombian culture and history 220 yards, or 200 meters, underground. This fascinating salt mine is a must-see attraction while visiting Bogota, Colombia! 

Departure Time: 9 am Monday - Sunday

Detailed Itinerary

Departure Time: 9 am

Zipaquira is located about 50 km north of Bogota. It will take us approximately 1 hour to reach our destination. We will spend about 1.5 or 2 hours inside the Salt Cathedral. During our time in the cathedral, an expert guide will take you through the Stations of the Cross. At each station you will see a symbolic representation of events from Jesus' last journey before his crucifixion. At the end of this walk, we will come to the main dome and the three naves of the cathedral that are interconnected by a gigantic crack, which symbolises the birth and death of Christ. You will learn about Colombian culture, religion and architecture during this day tour. Once we finish our visit to the cathedral, we will start our journey back to Bogota.
