Not much to say or maybe I’m not sure how to say it. But this was a beautiful monument of a dying lion, very symbolic of Swiss bravey & apparently build to commemorate all the Swiss soliders who died during the French revolution protecting Marie Antoinette & co. Apaprently Mark Twain has praised it as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world." The lion’s expression is very heartfelt, wounded & you see it’s suffering, it’s reflections/inner ‘thoughts’ are open to interpretation. Nice small lake in front of the statue which a guide had earlier told us was often filled with salt in winter months to prevent it freezing into a frozen surface which people can use to approach the lion & touch it. Some Asians had gathered around laughing & posing & spending too much time taking photos [of themselves] so unfortunately be prepared that as is often the case with things like this, many around you don’t understand what it’s all about. It is a walk into the old town & signage will generally guide you there. It’s worth seeing.
