Cupolas were first used during the 8th Century in Islamic architecture atop minarets. It’s believed nomadic Moors brought them to Europe by way of Spain. Their domed and pointed shapes were used on churches to prevent snow from accumulating and collapsing the structure.

Today cupolas combine aesthetic design and practical utility. They allow for inexpensive lighting and ventilation for an attic or lofted area while providing amazing views and a beautiful architectural look for a home or barn. See for yourself!
