Notre Dame de Paris, Paris: 652 reviews and 1,336 photos
Gargoyles are said to scare off and protect Notre Dame from any evil or harmful spirits.
Notre Dame's Gargoyles and Chimeras are one of our favourite things about Paris.
Enjoy the gothic grotesque!
Interesting that "in architecture a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building" and rainwater typically exits through the open mouth.
