The memorial stone
The Tyndall Memorial stands on the Triembiel. The memorial stone, dedicated to Irish naturalist John Tyndall, is a natural erratic boulder from a nearby hollow. The stone is 4.75m high and 1.5m thick. It was carved and inscribed by the Naters stonemason Lorenzo Giovangrandi according to the design of the landscape architect Fernand Corevon from Geneva.
The inscription reads: Raised to her all beloved by Luisa his wife to mark a place of memories.
However, the stonemason made a small mistake in the second part of the inscription:
The municipality of Naters dedicates this site dear to him to the noble English naturalist, her honorary burger.
