Zipaquira Overview

Zipaquirá is a charming town located 48 km north of Bogotá. The main square is surrounded by old Spanish Colonial style buildings. It has fantastic bakeries!

Above the town, on Zipa hill, is the renowned Salt Cathedral. It is a church built inside a salt mine. From the outdoor Ceremonial Square, you enter and descend through the mines into the sacred Cathedral by a series of intricate tunnels illuminated by UV lights.

The underground Cathedral features:
• A huge Sanctuary with a large cross, balconies and a replica of Michelangelo’s "Creation of Adam" carved in salt.
• Separate chapels for the 14 Stations of the Cross that depict the Passion of Jesus Christ.
