Five Lands (Cinque Terre) - Campiglia: menhir of Tramonti
Discovered in 1922 by Ubaldo Mazzini, an historian of La Spezia, the menhir of Tramonti is 2.50m. tall, a rock that probably in Roman age already had some astronomical function. On June 21, summer solstice, the menhir shadow is exactly projected in the middle of Posa Grande, a dry wall of stone that lies ahead. Next to the great and enigmatic stone, there are two stones, one with a circular hole and the other with a rectangular one. - See the Five Lands (Cinque Terre) map with a complete picture set.
