Justo Gallego was 38 years old when he started building his very own “cathedral” – by himself, by hand.

“When I started to build this cathedral,” Gallego, now 90 years old, told CNN, “the word on the street was that I was crazy. They didn’t believe I was going to be so dedicated, and well, I’m proving them wrong.”

Located in Madrid, Spain, Gallego’s church has a parish hall, cloisters, a baptistry, dome, crypt, and a huge main church.

He credits everything to his faith in Christ: “It makes me happy because they see what a man can do when he trusts in Christ.”

Here are some pictures of his church:
