Menhir Vicinanze I
Giurdignano (LE)
Object Type: Menhir
Staus: Present
Latitude: 40.12263
Longitude: 18.42436
Description: It is made of Lecce stone and a cross is engraved on the East facing side. The monolith is a few hundred metres from the menhir San Paolo in Contrada Vicinanze, surrounded by a wooden fence and a dry wall and it is situated on an outcrop of rock. The top 10 cm curve inwards with a step-shaped groove, which runs along the whole menhir and leads to a decrease in the depth at the top. On the smaller side surfaces we can see numerous parallel grooves, caused by cutting and shaping instruments. The larger sides are better refined. On the West facing side, on the top part, there is a blind circular hole, the so-called ‘eye of the menhir’, which can be found on many menhirs in Salento and in general in Puglia. At approximately 1.40m from the base we can see signs of restoration.
