Mina de Sal de Nemocon, Nemocon

4.9
#2 of 19 in Nature in Cundinamarca Department
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.

  • I do not remember how many times I've been at this mine, it is one of my favorite places to visit in Cundinamarca and, personally, I think having a wave a bit more traditional than the mine of Zipaquira, without diminishing the latter, clearly. Mine reflects the history of the inhabitants of the area during the heyday of the exploitation of the salt and is even reference the location and work of the muiscas indigenous peoples. The municipality has good choices of restaurants and places to walk and get to know; Bogota is very simple.

  • the access, less than half of those of the Salt Cathedral, includes a guide. We arrived early, so Guide for both of us. First explanation in Mini Museum, dedicated to two Dutch scientists to the paleontology of the region to be situated. For us very interesting. After more than 1.5 hours in the mine, with explanation anywhere. Very passionate Guide, much more worth it than the Salt Cathedral

  • For me this is the perfect for an escape from the city, in my opinion it is much better that the salt mine Zipaquirá which is very crowded and not enjoy, however the mines of nemocón are custom tours and very nice inside They tell you all sorts of stories and even signed a film there. Just great.
