At first glance, the Las Lajas Sanctuary in the hilly country of southern Colombia is reminiscent of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany’s Bavarian Alps. But the latter was the work of a mad king while the former is a basilica built where, in the 18th century, a blind girl regained her sight during a thunderstorm. A rural, neo-Gothic church on the border of Ecuador and Colombia? Just further proof it’s a big, wide wonderful world.
