If you're in the area definitely stop for a drive around the grounds. Really beautiful architecture of this building is really pretty. And of course it houses lots of different religious artifacts and things but we did not go inside

This seminary sits on high ground just north of Worthington, OH. It's old magestic buildings can be seen for milles around. I do not know if you can take tours but just a drive through shows interesting architecture.

One of the few Pontifical Colleges in the US, and it is a beautiful place. On rare occasions its facilities are open for concerts or other events, and you don't want to miss it. Normally the grounds are posted as no admittance.

This is a well established seminary that infrequently provides opportunities to tour. It has an interesting back story to explain why it is the only Rome-directed pontifical cloolege in Nrth America, plus some amazing academic religious history. The interior architecture is less impressive than the...More
