Half day tour to Zipaquirá and its Unique Salt Cathedral

Taken the road to the north of Bogotá and crossing by the exclusives neighborhoods, we get the green savahna full of cattle and agricultural farms. We pass by the Marroquin Castle and the Common Bridge (1. 792) on the Bogotá River, we also pass by a couple of colonial towns as Chía (Moon) and Cajicá (Fort of Stone). The names come from the language spoke by the natives. We continue directly to the Salt Mine where we go inside the Tunnels and Galleries open by the miners in times of production and along them we will see the cross stations carved in the natural salt rock. These impresive sculptures lead us to the huge naves where the Cathedral was built in the natural rock.
