With a history spanning more than 500 years in its 1.6 kilometers of tunnels and chambers, the Nemocon Salt Mine has risen rapidly to become one of the country’s most visited tourist attraction. Its rich mining, scientific, historical and cultural background, coupled with spectacular brine mirrors and superficial lighting effects will bound to mesmerize any traveler that visits this place. This mine functioned between 1816 and 1968, where nearly 8 million tons of salt were extracted from it. Then, 38 years after closing, it reopened its doors as a tourist attraction.

Besides Nemocon Salt Mine, you will also get to walk around the beautiful colonial village of Zipaquirá, about 20 minutes away from the salt mine. You will walk through the main square, where you will learn more about its history and its heritage buildings.
