These homes are too cringy to look at, I would not step foot in any of them because of how immediately apparent the outdated look is. Depressing.

The Cathedral of Justo is a building of great proportions, similar to a large Christian cathedral, located in Mejorada del Campo (Madrid, Spain). It is being built by the initiative of one person, Justo Gallego Martínez.
He began to build it on a farmland owned by his family on October 12, 1961, after being expelled from a Cistercian monastery for being sick with tuberculosis.
When his healing took place, as a promise, he decided to thank God and the Virgin with the construction of this work.
Justo Gallego has been building his work for almost 50 years, and with the exception of some sporadic help, he did everything by himself, without having any training related to construction
