These stone creatures (56 in total) were installed in the 19th Century on the gallery connecting the bell towers of Notre-Dame, built between 1163 and 1345 in Gothic Style. This church is considered a major masterpiece of medieval architecture and artwork, even though various elements - such as the chimeras - were added later.
