PLANE FLIES OVER CATHEDRAL BUILT BY FORMER SPANISH MONK IN CENTRAL
SPAIN. 
Plane flies over unfinished church in the central Spanish town of
Mejorada del Campo December 3, 2003. Justo Gallego, a former Spanish
monk, single-handedly started the construction of the building he calls
a cathedral forty years ago. He sold part of his inheritance to buy
materials and learned about architecture and art by reading books. The
cathedral, which now measures 33 metres high but will reach 55 metres
when finished, attracts hords of tourists to this dormitory town
outside Madrid. Gallego, who tackled the project out of faith, doesn't
always welcome the attention. " It 's good if they come, but they need
to leave donations so that I can finish it," Gallego says.
