• Pilgrim's Column by Christ & Gantenbein
  • Posted 23 months ago by Jack Lowe · @jacklowe · Art & Design · 7041 Views
  • Placed along an ancient pilgrimage trail in Mexico, the Cerro del Obispo (or Pilgrim's Column) is a tall concrete column designed by Basel-based practice Christ & Gantenbein. The structure acts as one of nine landmarks along the 117 kilometer journey from Ameca to the shrine of the Holy Virgin of Talpa in Talpa de Allende and stands at 26.55 meters tall on top of a 2,000 meter high peak. Visitors are encouraged to enter through a single entrance at the bottom. Once inside the natural daylight pours down through the open roof and gently diffuses off the smooth grey walls to create a calming effect.
