Brunswick Monument

A mausoleum, built by the people of Geneva in 1879 after a considerable sum of money was bequeathed to them by Duke Charles II of Brunswick. It is an exact reproduction of the 14th century Scaglieri family tomb in Verona, Italy.

Listed as a historic building, the Brunswick Monument is surprising in its architecture and history. This neo-Gothic-style mausoleum is a historical replica of the Scaligeri family tomb in Verona dating from the fourteenth century and built at the request of the Duke of Brunswick.
