What people are saying:

Colombian Salt Church is located 50 kilometers north of Bogota and is one of Colombia's famous tourist destinations. The town is beautiful and the river is very clear. In the 1990s, the local government closed the salt mine for safety reasons. In fact, it was originally used by miners to pray for blessings when working underground, and then it has been continuously expanded until now. To the degree of jaw-dropping. And also applied for the selection of the eighth wonder of the world, but in the end was not shortlisted. The cathedral is 180 meters below the surface and is very spectacular.
