It is considered one of the wonders in Colombia. The architecture of the cathedral is mesmerizing, as well as all of the sculptures in the mine. You can get an audiotour, it was a wonderful experience.

A great experience if you continue to the end and see the main Cathedral. The walk is 1km down to the Cathedral and 1km back. The Cathedral is built inside an old disused Salt Mine, and the views are great. You can use your camera...More
