  3. 3. About Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception  One of the most notable projects is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. A site of national and international pilgrimages, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception has earned acclaim for its Redemption Dome, which features a series of religious imagery significant to Catholicism, including the temptation of Christ in the desert. While the original plans for the basilica in the 1950s included such a dome, the Redemption Dome did not enter its main planning stages until 1999. The mosaics in this part of the basilica, which were completed in 2006, have inspired reverence and devotion in visitors to the site in the years since then.
