The dome
The towering dome of the Basilica of the Sanctuary of Loyola is 164 feet high and 65 feet wide. Its design mirrors that of the marble floor, leading to a reflecting visual effect. At the base of the dome we find statues representing Catholic virtues such as Faith, Hope, Religion, Charity, Prudence, Justice, Fortitude and Temperance, as well as coats of arms of the commissioning families, the Habsburgs and Bourbons.
