Zipaquir Cathedral

The small town of Zipaquir is located 48 km north of Bogot.
Most people visit it on a day trip from Bogot. The town has a fast and very regular bus service with the Colombian capital.

Once arrived in the bus station of Zipaquir most people hurry to the big attraction on the outskirts of town: the salt cathedral (pictures will follow next time).
Although many visitors overlook the centre of town, I found it quite charming.

The Parque Principal is the most beautiful square with Zipaquirs real cathedral and a lot of colonial architecture on the other sides.

The picture here shows the cathedral seen from the place where the salt cathedral is hewn into a rock.
That salt cathedral lies completely below ground. So later I will only be able to show pictures of its interior.

In the workshop a closer view of the cathedral on the Parque Principal.
