THE PARK OF THE RISORGIMENTO (REVIVAL): THE TOWER AND THE OSSUARY OF SAN MARTINO

Museums at Desenzano del Garda

The monumental complex commemorates the battle fought here on 24 June 1859 between the Austrian army and the Franco-Piedmontese. At the entrance of the tower, 64 metres high, the visitor is greeted by the statues of the protagonists of the unification of Italy: The frescoes along the ramp retrace the events of the Risorgimento and from the terrace you can enjoy a 360° view. The museum displays weapons, relics, documents and objects used by the soldiers, while the nearby chapel ossuary houses the bones of thousands of the fallen.
