Las Lajas Shrine
The Las Lajas Shrine is a Catholic minor basilica in Ipiales, Colombia, located within the canyon of the Guáitara River. The basilica was built between 1916 and 1949 in the Gothic architectural style to commemorate a apparition of the Virgin Mary. Measured from the base of the canyon, the basilica is 100 metres (330 ft) tall.Photograph credit: Diego Delso
