Description

There are thousands of cathedrals, churches and chapels throughout the country, but there is only one that is 180 meters (590 feet) below the surface: the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, listed as the first wonder of Colombia. If your stay in the capital is time-limited, we at Hansa Tours recommend you put this destination at the top of your list. And if you're still not sure, it's because you don't yet know all that awaits you. In this experience you will not only be able to visit the majestic Cathedral, but you will also find a subway city full of wonders to contemplate and mysteries to discover. Wonders such as 'The Way of the Cross' with its 14 stations, each one adorned with sculptures carved in salt rock, or 'The Narthex', an enigmatic work in the form of a labyrinth that, according to biblical history, the unbaptized had to go through in an act of penance. You can also visit the sacred place of the miners. The chapel of the Virgin of Guasá or 'La Morenita' as the workers affectionately called her. And that's not all! You will still have to discover the Nave of Life and its imposing salt rock cross, as well as the Nave of Death and Resurrection with its masterpiece 'Pietat'. And believe it or not, here you can also enjoy a theater hall and even relax in a Spa. That's right, a Spa 180 meters underground. Now do you understand why we say this is a must-see destination? Contact Hansa Tours, hand in hand with our expert guide, get ready to descend into the depths of history, architecture and spirituality of this wonder called Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira.
