Avenue of lions

Avenue of lions

West of the lake and next to the Litoo lies the most photographed and worldwide known as the symbol of the island, the Avenue of the Lions. The five marble Lions standing proud were originally 16. They were sculpted during the 7th century B.C. using Naxos marble, representing symbolic guardians of the Holy Lake. During the 17th century, the Venetians seized one, still found in the port of Venice.
