Day 265 – Salt Cathedral, Zipaquira

We meet up with Ardun, Jen and Antonia in Bogata and head out on local buses 50km north to visit the Salt Cathedral in Zipaquira. Built 20 years ago, it is 200 metres underground under the salt mines and 250,000 tons were extracted to construct it. So big it holds up to 10,000 people during Christmas and Easter. Beautifully carved 14 stations of the cross off the main tunnel down to the cathedral. Now one of Colombia’s wonders of the world.
