University of San Diego Walk (Self Guided), San Diego

A sightseeing tour of the University of San Diego campus is one of the most rewarding cultural activities in the city. This 16th-century private Roman Catholic university has been named as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States. The reasons for this are plain to see with its manicured gardens and a stunning Spanish Renaissance architectural style that is both a tribute to San Diego's Catholic heritage and the Universidad de Alcalá in Spain. This Spanish seat of learning served as architectural inspiration. The white buildings are a dazzling sight, both day and night.

Of the many highlights, the Founders Hall and the blue-domed Immaculata Parish Church particularly stand out for their majesty and beauty. Step inside the church to admire the altar, stunning ceiling and mesmerizing stained glass windows. During your campus visit, enhance your cultural experience by visiting the university's fine art galleries and look over the exhibited works.

The attractiveness of the campus isn’t just to appeal to the aesthetic senses of all who come here. The university’s founder believed that studying in such a beautiful and harmonious environment would improve the education experience for students. Another feature of the campus grounds is the exceptional view of the city from here.
