On top of the Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris, you can see some really ugly creatures that look like a devil. One can wonder what are those doing on top of a christian chuch. The purpose is to throw away the water and they are said to guard the church. For me they are just plain old creepy things.

Address:
6, place du Parvis de Notre Dame, 75004 Paris, France‎
