This mausoleum was a large building located at the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France and housed the tombs of countless members of the ancient wizarding Lestrange family.[1]

History

In 1927, the notorious Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald called for a rally underneath the mausoleum. He gave an inspiring speech to a huge crowd of his followers regarding the future and his views on Muggles, but was interrupted by Aurors, which caused a furious battle to break out.
