2 1/2 hours away from Bogota but it was worth it. This cathedral was built within the tunnels of a salt mine. This was One of the most amazing places we've ever visited since Dennis and I are both catholics. We always love to check churches very places we visit. It was definitely an overwhelming spiritual experienced for us.There were also stores inside where we bought i think 4 small salt sculptures ( sacred heart of jesus and angels) and a pair of Emerald earrings and necklace since Colombia produces the most emeralds for the global market.
