Mina de Sal de Nemocon, Nemocon

#2 of 49 in Parks in Cundinamarca Department
Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
The most memorable features of Mina de Sal de Nemocon include a natural mirror composed of old tanks filled with brine and a huge, heart-shaped salt crystal carved by the miner Miguel Sánchez in the 1960s. Walk through the 1.6 km (1 mi) of tunnels along the cascades of salt, and stalactites and stalagmites shaped as ferns, roots, bulbs, and snowflakes. See the "dancing room" with simple chandeliers, and the chapel with a massive sphere symbolizing the world carved in 1,300 kg (2,866 lb) of salt and a replica of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Join workshops to learn how to make decorative pieces using a mixture of salt and flour, or how to paint with brine and oils.
