Fun Facts

  • Struck by the white, gleaming castle-like structure towering over Pittsburgh? It's not a church, but it is a cathedral . . . the Cathedral of Learning at University of Pittsburgh. It was inspired by classic Gothic architecture and commissioned in 1921. (And it's just as impressive inside!)
