Back in pre-Columbian times, salt around the area was the most important commodity and the "salt cakes" were the only currency for trading. Over time, technology improved and the muiscas began to extract larger amounts of salt. As a result, an underground salt deposit was formed and it is where the Salt Cathedral was built, 180 meters below the surface. Inside, there is a chapel, "capilla de los mineros" built as a tribute to the Virgin "Our Lady of the Rosary of Guasa" (Guasa means 'mine' in Chibcha). At the end, return to Bogotá.
