We opted for the visit to the cathedral and the tour of the miners. We love the various scenarios in the Cathedral! It really is something very exclusive! After the visit we did the tour of the miner that was very fun! We chose to go very early to zipaquirá, and we arrived there around 9am, we were leaving, near the 12am, the cathedral was crowded!
Oude mijn waar een Kathedraal onder de grond van gemaakt is. Audio ondersteuning aanwezig. Echt nodig. more »Old mine where a cathedral is made under the ground. Audio support available. Really needed.
Its very interesting place to visit. Church under ground. Lots of walk. Must watch a short movie tells a lot about the history. I didn't like the amount of shops there, if its a sacred place don't turn it into business move shops outside a side, it doesn't have a be mandatory. Or don't call it a church then its a museum of salt.
Now this place it's a most see when going to Bogota. Its majestic. The sculptures and the lighting make this place a great experience. I loved the representation of every country with Virgin Mary and the end.
