Walk through the Sanctuary and take in its neo-colonial architecture as your guide shares insights into its development. Stroll through the handicraft markets.

On the other hand, the rich history of the mount goes back centuries due to it used to be a sacred place for the indigenous communities. By the way, it is the 2nd highest lookout spot in the city (10,341 ft).

10:30Botero Museum

Browse through the 208 artworks in the Botero Museum Gallery, whose worth estimated at 200 million USD. Of course, its cultural value is priceless.

Stroll through over 2 km of tunnels of a former salt mine as your guide/audio-guide allows you insights into the carving of the 14 chapels connected by an illuminated labyrinth. Its lighting creates a ravishing experience that is almost magical—even for non-religious people. Hear in-depth commentary on the Cathedral’s enthralling architecture, history, and cultural value. Gaze at the exceptional design of the marble sculptures carved by an Italian artist.

Finally, enjoy the captivating reflecting effect produced by the Water Mirrors and the Lighting Show.
