They’re so cute and evil! They’re so… Hunchback of Notre Dame. Or Batman Returns. They kind of remind me of Dobby in Harry Potter. Alright, you can project your own pop culture references onto these little guys when you go on the National Cathedral Gargoyle tour. Admission is $10 per adult; $5 per child (12 and under); or $30 per family. No reservations necessary.

Upcoming dates (all Sundays at 2 p.m.):
July 26
August 23
Sept. 27
October 25

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.

  1. Unless the tour has improved since this was brought up on the old site, don’t bother. When we went it was an old woman telling us to look up.
