Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Notre Dame, Indiana

Ceiling of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. Consecrated in 1888 after 17 years of construction, this neo-gothic landmark now attracts over 50,000 visitors a year. The 116 stained glass windows, created by Carmelite nuns in Le Mans, France, add color, light, and airiness to the interior, while the use of Notre Dame brick on the exterior ties the structure to the rest of the buildings in the quad around it.
