This is an unusual collection of graves and sarcophagi for one of the most senior families of the medieval town it is worth passing by just to see the intricacy of the stone carvings

This is a part of an unusual family burial place, so why it is called an arch? It looks like a stone canopy adorned with stone decor. If you learn the story of Verona rulers - you open the secret
