Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral: An architectural wonder.
In Zipaquirá, 50 kilometers coming out from the northside of Bogotá, is the largest salt mine in Colombia. Although the mines date back to the time of the Muiscas, primitive inhabitants of the region have been intensively exploited, they continue to have enormous reserves. In the heart of the mountain, an underground salt cathedral was dug, in what constitutes a monumental work of engineering, architecture, and design. The huge interior can be 25 meters high, with a capacity of 10,000 people. It is the most visited tourist attraction in Colombia.
