The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá

Undoubtedly, the crown jewel of Zipaquirá is its Salt Cathedral, a monumental church built within the tunnels of a salt mine 200 meters underground. This architectural marvel is not only a place of worship but also a testament to Colombian ingenuity and faith. The cathedral's ethereal lighting and intricate salt carvings create a serene atmosphere that is both awe-inspiring and humbling. A visit here, perhaps with a Happytripz guided tour, is an absolute must.

Main Square of Zipaquirá and the Diocesan Cathedral

At the heart of the town lies the Main Square, a vibrant hub of activity surrounded by colonial buildings and the impressive Diocesan Cathedral. Stroll through the square to soak in the local culture and enjoy the various eateries and shops. The cathedral itself, with its neoclassical facade, stands as a proud symbol of the town's religious heritage.

Independence Square

Another significant site is Independence Square, where the town's rich history is palpable. It was here that Zipaquirá declared its independence from Spanish rule, a pivotal moment in Colombian history. The square is a perfect spot for history enthusiasts to delve into the past and reflect on the country's journey to freedom.
