The Cathedral of Learning - Pittsburgh

This is about the end of my tour of Pittsburgh. There is one more I want to show you on Monday for Monday Murals, which is taken from one of the Nationality Rooms inside of here.

The Cathedral of Learning was built from 1926-1934. It is the centerpiece of The University of Pittsburgh's main campus.

There are 42 floors. Guests can only go up to the 36th floor to get a nice view, which we did!

And I have to double up today to show you how amazing the inside is:
Wow right?!

  1. I doubt that buildings like this will ever be built again. Too many have been victims of the wrecking ball, but this one looks like it'll be around for a long time. Great interior.

  9. It does look like a cathedral and it's absolutely gorgeous. We were in Pittsburgh but it was many years ago when we lived in the Philadelphia area. I remember the hills/mountains and lush greenery, too.
