C changes the meaning, and uses monument of architecture, which is wordy when comapred to architectural monument.

B is better

IMO B,

Erasmus's tomb lies inside the Basel Munster, located in Switzerland, an architectural monument which having survived medieval earthquakes, and remains one of Switzerland's most well-known buildings to this day.
A. Erasmus's tomb lies inside the Basel Munster, located in Switzerland, an architectural monument which having survived medieval earthquakes, and should be in simple past tense...survived.
B. Erasmus's tomb lies inside Switzerland's Basel Munster, an architectural monument which survived medieval earthquakes and
C. Switzerland's Basel Munster, a monument of architecture which survived medieval earthquakes, houses Erasmus's tomb
The monument is the 'tomb inside in Basel Munster' and looks like the earthquakes house the tomb.
D. The Basel Munster, in Switzerland, an architectural monument which, having survived medieval earthquakes, is now home to the tomb of Erasmus
should be in simple past tense...survived.
E. The tomb of Erasmus, being housed inside Switzerland's Basel Munster, is an architectural monument which survived medieval earthquakes and

OA B.

But isn't C more || than B ?

B. Erasmus's tomb lies inside Switzerland's Basel Munster, an architectural monument which survived medieval earthquakes and

=> which survived ... and remains .....

C. Switzerland's Basel Munster, a monument of architecture which survived medieval earthquakes, houses Erasmus's tomb

=> houses ... and remains .....

OE says C is grammatically correct but changes the subject of the sentence.

But to maintain the || , C is one step ahead of B !!

Yeah, I also chose C for the very reason that it is parallel - houses... and remains...
