We have the case of the building "Lonja de la Seda" or the silk market of Valencia, one of the most important constructions in Valencian Gothic style. Many of the tourists who visit this important monument are intrigued by the peculiar figures of the gargoyles (pipe to drain the rainwater from the roofs).

Will it make sense in a city that for many years has functioned as the "gateway to sins "?
