Nicknamed "little Rome," this Northeast neighborhood contains the largest concentration of Catholic institutions (more than 60) outside of the Vatican. Catholic University, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, and the Franciscan Monastery boast beautiful gardens, architecture and art. Other sites beyond the religious icons include the city's oldest cemetery and the expansive gardens designed by Frederick Law Olmstead at the National Arboretum.
