A copula is a small dome, especially a small dome on a drum on top of a larger dome, adorning a roof or ceiling.

Agree with Barbara Todaro that it is typically a New England Thing. Popular in a few Florida developments promoting a New England style.

It is a small (as in tiny) or large structure (can have windows) on top of a roof - I think of it in older New England style homes or maybe farmhouses Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers.  It can add an interesting touch to the roof!

My home in Mexico has many cupolas. All with glass sides to let more light enter the rooms. They are small domes that sit on top of a larger dome and provide light as explained and or ventilation, plus they are way cool!

In architecture, a cupola is a small, most often dome-like, structure on top of a building. Often used to provide a lookout or to admit light and air, it usually crowns a larger roof or dome.
