AUGUSTO ROQUEMONT

AUGUSTO ROQUEMONT

As with any 19th c. cemetery, some of the mausoleums at the Prado do Repouso are whacky eclectical creations of architectural wonder. This one combines an oversized Greek-revival four corner pediment with acroteria above an almost abstract rusticated cube and again a Greek inspired gigantic base profile. The lettering is nice too.
