Meet the Man Building a Cathedral Alone and By Hand
Our creativity is motivated by various factors, but for the past 53 years, it’s been divine inspiration that’s kept Justo Gallego toiling on a grand cathedral on the outskirts of Madrid… all by himself. The now 90-year-old man has done everything by hand despite having no formal architecture or construction training. But these days, he’s realized that his time is almost up and has accepted that he won’t be able to complete the project in his lifetime.
Will you be inspired to pick up where he’ll leave off?
