The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá is a subterranean Roman Catholic Church built inside the tunnels of a salt mine situated 200 meters below sea level in a mountain close to the town of Zipaquirá. It is an exceedingly well-known destination in the region. The title 'Salt Cathedral' was given mainly for drawing tourists to it. This actively working church receives up to 3,000 visitors on Sundays. As it does not have any bishop, it does not hold official status as a cathedral within Catholicism.
