We've seen this beautiful campus on the hill north of the capital with this huge building that I thought was a big cathedral. We finally took an afternoon to go see it. It is George Town University. And it is spectacular. There is this incredibly old building that is stunning. It looks like the Harry Potter school was based on it. This school is a a Jesuit and Catholic university. It was established in 1789 and is the oldest Catholic School in America. About 15,000 students attend.
We got out and walked around because it was so lovely. The architecture was fantastic.
This incredible building was named "Healy Hall". We went inside and it was beautiful dark wood and carvings.
