See <b>The Lion Monument</b>, sculpted out of the rock face as a memorial to the 760 Swiss mercenaries who died trying to defend Louis XVI of France at his palace at <b>The Tuilleries</b> in Paris in 1792.
Described (by Mark Twain, no less) as 'The saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world', this monument is both simple and stirring.
