The Madman and the Cathedral

Elderly Madrid Man Builds Spanish Cathedral Entirely From Trash SEE MORE:
The Madman and the Cathedral is a documentary about one man’s dream to build a cathedral.

In 1963, Don Justo Gallego Martinez laid the foundation stone of a cathedral. A peasant, with no architectural training, no construction experience and no tools, he turned his back on the fields and started building. He had no blueprints and no planning permission. He had not even seen many cathedrals. All he had was the unshakeable conviction that God wanted him to build a cathedral.
