Menhir of Belbo river's springs (Saliceto)

Standing Stone / Menhir


Sited inside the Park of Belbo river's spring.

I think this menhir it's been moved from its original setting, to be re-used as milestone or border-stone.
But before of that use it's been christianised.

Under christian's crosses can be guessed, almost completly erased, engraved traces of a fertility's cult.

My thanks to Mr.Giovanni & Mr.Sergio Piazzo (my greats local guides).
