Photo Essay: A Cathedral Carved Out of Salt in Colombia

by Ekua on September 28, 2014 in captured on memory card,Colombia

About an hour away from the bustle of Bogota is the placid little city of Zipaquirá. At first glance, it looks like an unassuming place. That is, until you go underground. Inside the town’s old mine lies a cathedral carved out of salt, all psychedelic and glowing with perpetually changing jewel toned lights. Here are some photographs from a morning I spent exploring the cathedral:

That looks like a really cool place. I’m definitely going there in my upcoming trip to Colombia.

Wow, this looks amazing! I love how they’ve worked the lighting to give it a kind of surreal (and I guess religious) ambience.
