All are made by ancient indigenous Colombian cultures. With over 55,000 pieces of gold artifacts, this is the largest collection of gold artifacts in the world.

Once you have visited this amazing museum and seen the many beautiful sites La Candelaria has to offer, it will be time for you to ascend to the great height of 10,341 ft (3152m) and the summit of Monserrate; almost 2,000 ft higher than Bogotá.

Stroll the streets of the wonderfully charming town center of Zipaquirá and enjoy your lunch in this delightful colonial town.

You’ll be collected early from your accommodation in Bogotá, with a 7 am pickup, and driven the 60-90min to the Zipaquirá Salt Mine Cathedral. Here you’ll descend under to explore the tunnels in this salt mine first used by the pre-Colombian Musicas culture 5 centuries BCE. As you roam through the underground passages an expert guide will explain the full history of this marvel that has its beginnings 250 million years ago.
