Zipaquira & Guatavita Lake
After picking you up at your hotel we drive for about 1 hour to visit one of the Colombia’s landmarks, the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, a huge underground salt cavern almost 200-meters below ground.This amazing structure dates back to pre-Colombian cultures and was used as a place of worship before converting into a Catholic Church. Get stunned at the towering religious effigies carved by local artists out of the very rock itself as you wander amongst the monolithic caverns. Lunch on own and time to explore the town of Zipaquira where you will find interesting historic buildings and a charming street market. Right after that, we head towards Lake Guatavita, a pristine lake to the northeast of Bogota famous for its link to the legend of El Dorado. The legend of the Lost City of Gold apparently started around the lake, where priests made offerings and carried out important religious ceremonies. We will drive back to Bogota to end the tour.
