Imperfect Beauty Salvaged from the Waste

Cathedral made from trash

We’ve seen some mind-boggling cathedrals in our time, but few top this one, which was built single-handedly from trash by a man named Justo Martinez in Madrid, Spain. The holy man started the soaring structure nearly 50 years ago in a quiet neighborhood, and has been working on it since. The impressive church is built almost entirely from local materials salvaged by Martinez, and now stands at a soaring 131 feet tall.
