I love this lion statue, standing tall at the top of the Lion's Mound monument. Its eyes looked real and it. It’s as if it watches the battle fields where Napoleon was defeated by the British. In fact, the first thing I saw when I...More

The mound was created between 1824-1826 to honor those who died on the day of the battle of Waterloo. There are 226 steps up to view the massive cast iron lion.
