While wandering around the Chilean capital of Santiago one morning last spring, we chanced across a fun and historic building called Casa de las Gárgolas: the House of Gargoyles!
From what we could make out from a plaque (in Spanish) on the outside of the building, it was constructed in 1929 by an architect named Eduardo Costabal Zegers. The sign goes on to say (I think!) that the house has a medieval feel thanks to the Neo-Gothic style used in its design. All the gargoyles certainly support this conclusion.

And if that’s not enough for you, the first Jaspa’s Journey adventure, The Great Migration, is now available in both paperback and ebook formats from Amazon and other online booksellers! The first two sequels are scheduled to be released by Speaking Volumes later this year.
