Gargoyles for Halloween

Updated: Mar 22, 2021

Are gargoyles warding off evil spirits or merely a water spout? Hard to say for sure on Halloween night.

I've always had a fascination with gargoyles. Some are cute while others clearly appear to be evil. At any rate, they adorn medieval churches all over Europe. It is interesting that similar adornments can also be found in Asia too though this post will focus on the ones in Europe.

Here are some photos of the scariest we've encountered. Maybe they will inspire a Halloween costume or two. Enjoy.

Even the lion is very afraid.

They work in packs too!

Careful, they may be everywhere!
