2011-07-13 - IN, South Bend - Notre Dame University Tour (1)While visiting Tom, we also had opportunity to tour the campus of Notre Dame.  Founded in 1842, the campus is very impressive.  Highlights of the tour included the main buildings gold dome topped by a golden statue of St. Mary, a famous replica (1/7th the size) of the Lourdes grotto, a 134 foot tall mosaic of Christ on the side of the library and the ornate Basilica of the Sacred Heart.  Regretfully, there was not time to enter any of the buildings.
