30 Most Beautiful College Cathedrals

Jan 19, 2013

Unfortunately the term "cathedral" is misused or misunderstood so that the term "church" or "chapel" should be used in its place.  But the ranking is a listing of the 30 most beautiful "places of worship" attached to University campuses around the world.

I wouldn't necessarily be sending this out if Notre Dame's Basilica of the Sacred Heart weren't selected as Number 1 in the world, but here again ND is #1. 

Other University "churches" in the top 30 ranking include:

#19. St. Ignatius Church, University of San Francisco

#16. Madonna Della Strada, Loyola University, Chicago

#14. Immaculata Parish Church, University of San Diego

#8.  Great Saint Mary's Church, Cambridge, England

#6.  Toledo Cathedral, Royal University of Toledo, Spain

#5.  Chapelle de la Sorbonne, University of Paris

#4.  Batell Chapel, Yale University, New Haven, Conn.

#3.  Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela,

            University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain

#2. Church of Saint Yves at the Sapienza, University of Rome, Italy

#1. Basilica of the Sacred Heart, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana
