Not so far from Bogota; 17 miles north of the capital you can visit the amazing Salt Cathedral carved on the salty millenarian rock. It shows the interesting work of a Colombian architect who designed the chapels representing the Way of the Cross, the Choir, Nartex, and finally the huge galleries that represent the Cathedral.


9:00 a. m. Pick up at the hotel, heading to the Salt Cathedral out of town. 10:00 a. m. arrival and visiting the site, and the town's main square. At about 2:00 p. m. we'll be back at the hotel.
