A day trip to Zipaquirá

Last weekend we decided to leave the stink and smog of Bogotá behind us and took the  bus to Zipaquirá, a little town located about 50 km north of the capital. It wasn’t spectacular, but we really enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere of the town. The main attraction is a salt mine that has been turned into an underground cathedral. It is awe-inspiring to wander through that stony underground world that is dominated by huge crosses and slightly psychedelic light effects.

We had a very enjoyable and tranquil afternoon in Zipa, with a great ajiaco (the best if you are a little hung over) and some nice views of the town and surrounding mountains. But see for yourself!
