Don Justo's Self Built Cathedral

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Don Justo’s Self Built Cathedral in Mejorada del Campo, Spain. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

Don Justo Pastor died on the past 28th November at the age of 96. He had been working in his self built cathedral for 60 long years. But a big church like this, is anything but a easy enterprise in the short life of a human being and much less when a lonely an unassisted man with his own means, pretends to complet it. Now the future is uncertain, although the association of Father Angel Messengers of Peace (https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/relics-of-st-valentine-at-saint-anton-church) will seek to finish Justo’s work. Let’s hope that one day this great legacy will be completed for all of us who like special places. And this is truly one of them. Rest in peace.
