  • Gargoyles are sculptures, most often carved in stone, that can be found on roofs, usually with the purpose of hiding a spout designed to convey water away from the building. They are usually built ugly and frightening, as this was believed to ward off evil. The name comes from the French "gargouille", itself derivated from the latin "gurgulio", "gula", "gargula" (meaning "gullet" or "throat").
