Chairs or Benches?






They look like two big chairs, but for human dimensions they are surely benches.

Stoanerne Mandln

"Stoanerne Mandln" in Langtaufers (Valley).


One man took a stone and put it on another stone, he still took another stone and put it on the top, and so on... A second man saw this and did the same, then a third, a fourth and so on ... So an entire city arose....
Well, a city is not true because they are not towers and not skyscrapers.

They are STONE MEN, we call them "Stoanerne Mandln".

On the mountains were never built towers or high-rise buildings, but just stone men or stone figures.

South Tyrolean: "Stoanerne Mandln"
German: "Steinerne Männchen" or "Steinerne Männlein"
Italian: "Omini di pietra"














A famous place here in South Tyrol is the Salto plateau in the Val Sarentino.
There you can find more than 100 "Stoanerne Mandln", partially dated back to 1540.
