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 mine, has been built about 200 feet below the older one. It was completed in 1995. Lit by LED lights which constantly change colour; the church is a popular tourist and pilgrimage destination. The cross behind the 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 vertical format, lit entirely by the LED illumination, shows the main altar of the church. It was taken with the camera on a tripod, and a slow shutter speed. The altar is decorated with fresh flowers. No people.
