A natural rock “cathedral” in a lake in Chile (Catedral de Mármol)

On the shores of General Carrera Lake, in Chile, the erosion of thousands of years of water has modeled a rock formation that, in times of low water, can be explored inside. It is a series of islets and caverns accessible by small boats from the town of Puerto calm river, which have curious shapes. So much, as to equate them to small chapels and even to a marble cathedral.
