University of Notre Dame and its symbol: The Golden Dome... - Secret World

Notre Dame, IN 46556, Stati Uniti

by Catherine Mckinsey


The Golden Dome atop of the main administration building has become one of the most recognisable symbols of the University of Notre Dame. Rebuilt after a fire, the dome was topped with a 19-foot gilded statue of the Virgin Mary, to reflect the university’s Catholic identity. Other architectural landmarks include the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, which has the largest collection of 19th-century French stained glass in the world.
