Remember that animated feature film about a hunchback who had three gargoyles for sidekicks? Those comical sculptures made of carved granite are inspired by the real grotesque gargoyles adorning the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. These 25 epic gargoyles from around the world are examples of fantastic creatures from the out of the box imagination of sculptors and architects in the olden days. But they’re really not just works of art, they’re real purpose is to draw water away from the roof of castles or cathedrals so it doesn’t trickle down the sides of the buildings eventually eroding the walls and ruining their masterpieces.
