Las Lajas Sanctuary

When you first look at the the Las Lajas Sanctuary in Ipiales, Colombia, you wonder why such a massive structure was built over a river canyon. You also might think that it is very old, like similar European churches. But no -construction began in 1916 and was completed in 1946, making it fairly young as cathedrals go. The Guáitara river canyon spot it stands on was the site of miracle that legend says occurred in 1754. Read all about it and see more magnificent pictures at Kuriositas. Link -via the Presurfer
