In this article we prove that the fundamental group of certain manifolds, introduced by Gromov and Thurston [GT87] and obtained by branched cyclic covering over arithmetic manifolds, acts geometrically on a CAT (0) cube complex. We show in particular that these groups are linear over $\mathbb Z$.

Keywords: Cube complexes, hyperbolic manifolds, Gromov–Thurston manifolds
