I was scrolling through a set of gargoyle photos in order to find today’s gargoyle, and I was a little surprised to find a category entitled “Gargoyles of Chile”. This curious creature is from the Casa de Las Gárgolas (House of Gargoyles) in Santiago. I didn’t find much about this location except for this Spanish-language Wikipedia article, which tells us that the Casa is a Neo-Gothic house designed by Eduardo Castobal Zegers in the late 1920s and declared a Chilean National Monument in 2001. (At least that’s what I think it says; my Spanish is not particularly strong.) Below is a photograph of the Casa’s exterior.
