Salt cathedral, Zipaquira, Colombia.
The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá (Spanish: Catedral de Sal de Zipaquirá) is an underground church built in a tunnel of salt mines 200 metres inside a salt mountain near the town of Zipaquirá, in Cundinamarca, Colombia.
Curving and twisting tunnels descend into the Roman Catholic temple, passing 14 small chapels representing the stations of the cross, which illustrate the events of Jesus' last journey. Each station has a cross and several kneeing platforms carved into the salt structure. The temple at the bottom has three sections, representing the birth, life, and death of Jesus.
