Will Bureaucracy Fell Spain’s One-Man Cathedral?

Almost fifty years ago, Justo Gallego wanted to thank God for curing his tuberculosis, so he decided to build a cathedral – by himself. Since then, the former monk, who has no construction training, has labored every day on his 86,000-sq.-ft.(8,000 sq m) creation in the center of Mejorada del Campo, on the outskirts of Madrid. Today the cathedral is more than half done and has made its creator and his hometown famous throughout Spain.
