Ripley's Believe It or Not! is an American franchise, founded by Robert Ripley 98 years ago, which deals in bizarre events and items so strange and unusual that readers might question the claims. The Believe It or Not panel proved popular and was later adapted into a wide variety of formats, including radio, television, comic books, a chain of museums, and a book series.

The Ripley collection includes 20,000 photographs, 30,000 artifacts and more than 100,000 cartoon panels. With 80-plus attractions, the Orlando-based Ripley Entertainment, Inc., a division of the Jim Pattison Group, is a global company with an annual attendance of more than 12 million guests. Ripley Entertainment's publishing and broadcast divisions oversee numerous projects, including the syndicated TV series, the newspaper cartoon panel, books, posters, and games.

Mateo Blanco, Ripleys’ entertainment representative for Latin America just brought good news for the countries in the south of the American continent. The emporium created from the Believe It Or Not! cartoon will start including touristic places that offer an interesting story for potential future visitors.

The first Latin American touristic attraction the comic book include, is the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá.

Edward Meyer, Ripley’s expositions and files vice-president expresses: “The cathedral does not only have and interesting history, but is also a magical and unforgettable place, additional to being architectonic monument worldwide.
Raúl Galeano, the Cathedral’s general manager will receive the certificate by the North-American franchise this next 14th of August.

Without a doubt is a huge forward leap for Latin American tourism!
