"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Graffiti at Motril

Park at Motril, Spain
One good thing about writing a blog on graffiti is that it has made me tolerate, even appreciate, more when I see graffiti. I had to ease in to it by only liking the elaborate art form of graffiti at first. But now I embrace it all. It just doesn't bother me like it used to, partly because it is inevitable and everywhere and partly because of the unique uses of it. I see it from a different light.

While in Motril, we came upon a park near the Se├▒ora de la Cabeza Cathedral. (Who names their Cathedral Lady of the Head???) It was just loaded with graffiti everywhere. I couldn't help but take some photos.

There was graffiti on the walls, there was graffiti on the signage and even graffiti on the steps. The park walkway meandered around and ended up at the back of the Cathedral.
