Zipaquira, Colombia - April 24, 2014: The interior of the Salt Cathedral in Zipaquirá, located about 49 kms north of the capital city of Bogota, at an altitude of 2652m above sea level on the Andes, in the department of Cundinamarca, Colombia, South America. The new church, located several hundred feet below the surface of the earth, in an old Halite salt mine, was built about 200 feet below the older one. It was completed in 1995. Lit by LED lights that continuously change colour, the church is popular with tourists and pilgrims. The mines have been excavated from pre-Colombian times by the Muisca people dating back to the 5th Century BC. Photo in vertical format, lit entirely by LED illumination, with camera on tripod and slow shutter speed, was taken from near the altar; it shows the barrel vault that forms the actual church, and pews. At the far end, above the arch, is the choir loft. There are a couple of facility staff with hard hats seated to the rear of the church.
