Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

previous visits to South Bend had not allowed time to see anything significant at Notre Dame; however, over a period of 2 - plus days I was able to see interiors of several buildings. So much great history there--academic and athletic.

This campus is just so beautiful and the history of it is amazing. So much too see, Even if you are not a Notre Dame fan you should visit this campus if you are in the area. We are very glad that we did.
