Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

Located within the Prague Castle complex, Saint Vitus' Cathedral is an imposing Gothic church that holds the tombs of Bohemian kings and Holy Roman emperors. Beyond being utterly monstrous, the gargoyles nestled on this cathedral have a functional purpose -- they spew rainwater from the building's roof at an angle that keeps it from running down the walls. 960 1280
