Nice plaza with local restaurants. I did not see any souvenir shops near the area. It is a nice place to take pictures and see the mountains.

Typical town square plaza. Very busy on a Sunday afternoon. Colourful. Usual shops, restaurants, church and government buildings. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

We visited the Plaza of Zipaquira after our walk thru the salt mine Cathedral. The Town buildings and the Town Church combine different styles of architecture. Lots of vehicle congestion and hardley any parking.

All visitors to Zipaquira, should not miss the opportunity of visiting this landmark, where the flags of the five countries liberated by Simon Bolivar are on permanent display. Also, some of the best Colombian food restaurants are on this square.

It's a nice place to take pictures and feel the atmosphere of Zipaquira place. It is a large square and features a soft wind. The buildings around are old and downs. So much light hits it. You can start a quiet walk through the village...More

On your walk through the city to the Salt Cathedral, you pass by the plaza de la independencia. It's just average looking and a little run down.
