Gargoyle of the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, France
The gargoyles are an essential part of the history of the cathedral, and a key aspect of the site. The gargoyles' main purpose is very practical. As rain water runs down the roofs of Notre-Dame de Paris, it needs to drain off without dripping down the walls and potentially damaging them.
