Description

Nothing short of spectacular. Expensive (50.000 p pp for foreigners + 5000 to park if you use the guarded parking) but absolutely worth the money. Tour lasts 1.5 hours (Spanish every 15 min., English every hour). Make sure the battery of your camera is fully charged and prepare for low-light conditions.

Very impressive! We recommend this place. We bought the basic paket and paid COP 77'500 p.P. The audio guide is also in german available. Secured parking for the whole day costs 8'000 COP.

Price is now 60,500COP for foreigners. I’d advise to arrive early as it gets very busy during midday(this is holiday period however). We enjoyed it, found it quite a unique and impressive experience

We paid $7,000 COP for parking and $57,000 COP per person to enter. We spent about 2-2.5 hours there. Yes, it was pricey, but to us, it was worth it. The audio-guide gives good information, sets the tone for your tour, and it was really beautiful. We've not done anything like it in our 7 months of travel. Each person will have their own opinion and preferences; for us, it was a nice stop before heading to Bogota.

57.000cop pp included audioguide with different languages and a 15 min 3d film. no reduction for seniors if you are a foreigner. we have been to nemocón aswell. you can’t compare as they are different. it took us about 2hours.

now it costs 57 000 cop by adult and 47000 by child more than 4 years, less they don't pay. (they don't ask any documents). included an audioguide and at the end a 3D film about the mine story. not included the museum.
personally it's a bit expensive but nice.

Report Check-In

We were not impressed. They put up crosses and lights in the back of dark excavated mine tunnels and called it an architectural wonder, I don’t think so. Super expensive (55,000 per person) for what it is, we would have skipped it if we had known what it really was.

Exactly as the other people say. To me this is more an architectural and engineering kind of cave, than a church. it is quite expensive but, (just putting it out there) you can ask somebody local to buy you a ticket and you ll get the special discount price which is 30000. Which I think it s a fairer price. Also, you can park in front of the arqueological museum, right before the entrance, for free instead of paying 5000.

Nice attraction. Like written before. We stayed at the small parking lot near this check in point. Bring leveling blocks

Opens at 9 (queue started forming 5 min before, on a Saturday). First English tour at 10, then every hour.
We took the first Spanish tour (9.15) and the group was relatively small (20 pers.) and the guide spoke very clear Spanish. The groups starting after 11 where already quite big.

Well worth the money. Over 60,34,000 cop each. Not to be passed by

From the outside this is almost a bit Disney-like. But the actual mine with the viacrucis and the cathedral is just impressive and wonderful. We had a fabulous guide (in Spanish), everything is extremely well organized, beautifully lit and comprehensively labeled. The tour lasted 1.5 hours. The film (included in the standard ticket) was kitschy but still worthwhile.
We felt the COP 50'000 pp was justified. We did complain about the blatant foreigner-discrimination, though — Colombians pay half.

We initially wanted to visit but it is really expensive for foreigners (50.000 p pp + 5000 to park) so we decided to leave.
