The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, Colombia

Over one hundred and eighty metres below the ground, in the cool shadows of Colombia, lies the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira. Over 3000 people attend mass each Sunday at this subterranean Roman Catholic church.

I personally remember my grandfather used to tell stories about it when I was a child – he had a very close friend who was a pilot of British RAF – with first hand tragic anecdotes that made me more conscious about our lives.
