Create an itinerary including Mina de Sal de Nemocon
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. Make Mina de Sal de Nemocon a centerpiece of your Nemocon vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nemocon tour itinerary planning app.

  • Use a guide. Well worth the extra cost. Interesting stories especially the connection to the Chile mile rescue. Nice exhibits as well. Easy walking and fair prices.

  • So worth coming all the way here. The tour is very interesting, the capilla inside very nice. But if you go, you need to have a round trip ride. Otherwise will get stuck there or need to grab a bus 😱
