Ossuary of Custoza

Monuments & Sites, Museums & Art Centres
The Ossuary of Custoza was inaugurated by Amedeo di Savoia, the Duke of Aosta, on June 24th, 1879 to collect the bones of the Italian and Austrian soldiers who died during the wars of Independence of 1848 and 1866. It has always been the heart of the historic "pilgrimage" of the Risorgimento

The monument, designed by Giacomo Franco, is an octagonal-shape temple with four main sides and four minor sides, and is topped by an obelisk which reaches 38 meters high.

In the inside, there is a chapel with an altar, behind which a staircase leads to the crypt that houses the bones of the Italian and Austrian soldiers.
