Cathedrals are massive houses of worship that can take legions of workers decades to build and huge amounts of money to finance, but that hasn't stopped Justo Gallego from spending the last 50 years making one out of salvaged materials almost exclusively by himself.

After surviving a near-fatal bout of tuberculosis, the former monk vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to building a cathedral. Even a lack of any formal training or education has not kept Justo Gallego from his task.
