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.
We had a wonderful time visiting and learning about the Salt Cathedral! Our guide Lina did a great job explaining the history and building of the cathedral. She guided us through all 14 Stations of the Cross and the other areas underground, giving us time to absorb the atmosphere and take photos. On the way back to Bogota, we stopped in the main square of Zipaquira for a short photo opportunity. This was a very enjoyable tour and Lina made it one of the highlights of our trip!
Our tour guide, Lina, was absolutely wonderful! Her English is excellent and she is a kind, considerate guide - very accommodating, friendly and good natured. She made the tour as interesting as possible!
Easily the most fascinating tour I've taken in a long time. My English speaking guide was very knowledgeable and gave me tons of information bout the salt mines and the building of the cathedral. I would highly recommend this tour. If it's run by Hansa Tours, ask for Jurgen to be the guide!
