It's amazing to me that artisans could create such delicate looking arches and columns out of stone.
I'm fascinated by gargoyles, and there were hundreds in the monastery's cloister. Many of them were functional, and all were more interesting than the aluminum downspouts on my home.
Love this piggy gargoyle!
Intricate carvings covered every surface.
