Weeping Lion in Luzern

I was forewarned that this monument to the slain Swiss soldiers who were killed in France was deeply moving, and that Mark Twain had called it “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.” I still wasn’t prepared for how heartwrenching it was.

It’s a very short walk from the centre of town and is in a beautiful clearing, definitely worth a visit!
