Chapel housed in 500-year-old salt mine

2 posts in this topic

Building a chapel 800metres below the Earth's surface is hardly conventional.

Yet, these striking images show how one salt mine in Colombia has been turned into a place of sanctuary.

Now a major tourist attraction, the mine in Nemocon, Cundinamarca, around 58 miles from the country's capital Bogota, dates back over 500 years.

This isn't the first time I have heard of salt mines being used for other things besides getting salt. I've heard they store old movies in them because they don't deteriorate as fast.
