The Washington National Cathedral will be offering tours of its unique stone carvings for the first time since the building was damaged by an earthquake last year.
Tours exploring more than 100 gargoyles perched on the cathedral's facade will begin again Sunday at 2 p.m. The gargoyles include monsters, dogs and horses, as well as "Star Wars" villain Darth Vader.
The cathedral had to suspend the tour, as well as other regular events, following a 5.8-magnitude earthquake on Aug. 23. The quake caused stonework to fall from the building's towers and other damage. The cathedral reopened to the public in November.
Repairs are expected to take years. As of February 2012, the cathedral had raised $2 million toward the estimated $20 million restoration.
