Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira

When you enter the mine you feel the mineral smell and the darkness takes possession of everything. Afterwards, a play of lights discovers the carved rock and tunnels that house the viacrucis stations. In the end there is access to three ships: that of birth and baptism, that of life and death and that of the resurrection, each with an altar.

Lagoon
Sacred Lake of Guatavita

Surely you have heard about the Legend of El Dorado. Although there are many versions, the most famous assures that in the time of the Muisca indigenous people, the chief was covered with powdered gold and traveled a lagoon on top of a gold raft adorned with emeralds. The Spanish, during the time of the Conquest, assured that the Lake de Guatavita, in Cundinamarca, was the lake of that legend.
