Zipaquirá, Colombia - June 15, 2013: Visitors in the Catedral de Sal or translated, Cathedral of Salt, at the halite mines in Zipaquirá in the Department of Cundinamarca in Colombia, Latin America, admire the tallest indoor cross in the world behinf the main altar; the new Catedral is situated about 200 feet below the old one and was completed in 1995.


The interior of the Catedral de Sal, or the Salt Cathedral in Zipaquirá, located about 49 kilometres north of the Capital city of Bogota, at an altitude of 2652 metres above sea level on the Andes, in the department of Cundinamarca, Colombia, South America. The new Cathedral, located several hundred feet below the surface of the earth, in an old Halite salt mine, has been built about 200 feet below the older one. It was completed in 1995. Lit by LED lights which continuously change colour, the church is a popular tourist and pilgrimage destination. The cross behind the main altar is said to be the largest 'indoor' cross in the world. The mines have been excavated from pre-Colombian times by the Muisca people dating back to the 5th Century BC.

The photo, shot in horizontal format and lit entirely by the LED illumination, shows the main (barrel) vault that forms the actual church. It has been taken from from the Choir Loft, about 50 feet above the actual floor level of the Church, with the camera on a tripod, and a slow shutter speed. Some visitors can be seen in the photo.
