We drive of the capital through the northern residential area of the city and the fertile plateau to the town of Cajica, where a short stop will be made at the main square. We then continue on to the town of Zipaquirá, famous for its salt mine, where the underground salt cathedral will be visited. There you will have the opportunity to experience the extraordinary architecture and engineer of this remarkable underground mine.

This cathedral was carved inside an active salt mine, formed 250 million years ago under the Halite Mountains. Here you will find 14 small chapels that represent the Stations of the Cross and Jesus Christ's crucifixion. Afterwards we will continue to explore the town, which was founded on 1600 and still conserves its colonial heritage.
