Spice Up Your SpiritualityZipaquira, Colombia

Been a while since you pulled up a pew in the house of the Lord? There’s no better incentive than a pilgrimage to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá in Colombia. Voted the best of the country's many wonders, the church was carved from halite rock in the tunnels of a salt mine, 200 metres underground. This newest version of the Catholic place of worship was inaugurated in 1991, and is considered one of modern Colombia's greatest architectural achievements.

Half-day tours with Viator start at US$74.
