Inside the mine you will be guided along the main spots, so you learn the history from its natural formation to its evolution and the construction of the cathedral. The Cathedral will be your gate into a world of history often forgotten. Did you know an old salt empire once stood in this very plateau? You will have the chance to explore the cavernous halls and learn how this edifice was carved out of the mountains. It is a place filled to the brim Catholic symbols in a unique ambiance.

Out of the depths, you will ride to Zipaquirá, the key city in an old indigenous empire built on salt. Once there you will sit down for a local lunch of your choosing in one of the nearby restaurants. Then you will be able to walk around the colonial plaza for a while before taking the ride back to Bogotá.
