Fast Track Tickets for the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá

Skip the lines when visiting The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, an impressive Roman Catholic church that was built in the tunnels of a salt mine. The current salt cathedral is roughly 75 meters long and 25 meters high, with a giant cross carved into the back wall.

Considered one of the greatest achievements of the Colombian architecture, The Salt Cathedral’s temple has three sections, which represent the birth, life and death of Jesus. It can theoretically accommodate 10,000 people. More than 3,000 visitors come to the cathedral on most Sundays to praise the glory of both God and this mineral-ensconced home.

Buy now your tickets and head underground, 180 meters to this special Colombian place of worship. Be wowed by the dome, the balcony and the Narthex Labyrinth, all as salty as the bottom of the sea. No need to test that theory by licking things (although we forgive you if you do).
