Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá

Zipaquirá is the "Salt Cathedral" outside Bogota, Colombia. You have to walk 1.5km underground to reach this chamber.

The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá is an underground Roman Catholic church built within the tunnels of a salt mine 200 meters underground in a Halite mountain near the town of Zipaquirá, in Cundinamarca, Colombia. Years before the underground church was built (around 1932), the miners had carved a sanctuary, as a place for their daily prayers asking for protection to the saints before starting to work.
