Hunt for Gargoyles in Paris
I spy…something gray, made of stone and monstrous. Relive a classic, childhood game as you see how many gargoyles you can find as you explore the streets of Paris. Here’s a hint. Some churches put elaborately carved, stone gargoyles on buildings to keep away evil spirits and remind church goers of the damned souls in Hell. During the Middle Ages, gargoyles’ practical purpose was to act as a spout to drain water from off the roofs and the walls of buildings to prevent water damage. It’s always gargoyle hunting season in Paris!
