Recently restored to the Latrobe and Carroll design, the Basilica of the Assumption is a landmark of international significance because of its architectural design and role in American History. Spectacular original lighting effects designed by Latrobe were replicated including translucent glass windows in the nave, twenty-four skylights in the main dome, and the original lighting fixtures. Its restoration is one of the most extensive and significant on a religious building in the country, befitting the importance of America’s first Cathedral.
