    Santillana: Delicacies Made from Tropical Fruits

    After my arrival to Zipaquirá I wanted to visit the Salt Cathedral first. I followed the main street and soon came across this wonderful place. I thought I needed a morning portion of vitamins so I came in. Was happy to find one empty table left.

    Santillana is a nice little place in bright colours: one orange and one green wall. It only has three small tables and the decoration is quite simple. It specializes on delicacies made from tropical fruits. You can get anything from great varieties of fruit salads, juices, frappés and ice creams. The portions are enormous and the owner lady nicely decorate everything you order. On the counter there are glasses of various preserved fruits, chunks of chocolate, nuts, waffle sticks... and you can watch her while she is creating her pieces of art :)

    Favorite Dish: I had a huge glass (at least a half litre) of juice made from newly discovered lulo fruit which soon became one of my favourites. Yummy!!

    Tamales at Caf�� Plaza

    Café Plaza is a nice café in the corner of the plaza in Zipaquira. It is situated in one of the colonial buildings that are surrounding the plaza. I had a good tamale and a coke for 3800 pesos. The tamales consist of a steamed-cooked meal wrapped inside a banana leave. On the menu it said they had hamburgers, but at the moment they didn’t have it. But there was coffee and a variety of cakes.

    Salt ovens at the restaurant

    The place is really cool to visit after you went to the Salt Cathedral. It's on the way back to Bogota, just ask for the restaurant with with salt ovens. After taking the salt from the mines they took it to this place in order to make it liquid and smash it. You can see the actual ovens here.

    The food is not that good and a bit expensive but it is worth visiting even if not eating.
