Lion Monument

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by travel2000 on November 2, 2000

This is right before the entrance to the Glacier Garden. It is a carving at the side of the hill of a dying lion, in memory to the Swiss guards who died in Paris defending Louis XVI in the late 1700's. There is a small pond and is really a park for children and some tourist groups. I personally didn't find it interesting at all and decided also to skip the Glacier Garden. Instead, I bought some postcards and sat by the lake!
