Zipaquira

Churches · Landmarks · Historic Sites
A tour of Zipaquira, the salt-mining capital of Colombia, remains one of the best day-trip ideas from Bogota. The charming town is notable for its main attraction, a "Salt Cathedral" located in the caverns of a defunct salt mine and designed to represent Jesus taking his last steps before crucifixion. Walking around town you can enjoy authentic colonial-era architecture or visit museums dedicated to the city's history, culture, and salt-mining industry. Make Zipaquira central to your Colombia travel plans using our Colombia trip planner.
