Washington National Cathedral
  • Yellow Loop

The National Cathedral, completed in 1990, is the culmination of a two-century-long plan for a majestic Gothic style cathedral. This richly decorated cathedral is located on a landscaped 57 acre plot of land on Mount Saint Albans in Northwest Washington, 400 feet above sea level. The Cathedral is the sixth largest in the world, second largest in the United States. The top of the tower is the highest point in DC. Most of the decorative elements have Christian symbolism or are memorials to famous persons or events. Source: www.nps.gov
