Saint Augustine

The Lions on the ends of the Bridge of Lions

Who and Where was the lions made at? When the Lions where made did they not put ears on them, and when they requested the person to return to put ears on the Lions the person already passed away, is this true?

Thank You

Sean Barrett

The marble lions were made in Florence (Italy) by artisans at a local gallery commissioned by former St. Augustine mayor Andrew Anderson and are based on lion statues he saw in Florence at Loggia dei Lanza.

The bit about the ears is not true; it's just another tall tale told by substitute tourist trolley train drivers trying to make their narration more interesting.
