The Menhir and Cupule Rocks in the Laces-Martello Region

The Laces menhir and the Martello cup rock art

The Laces menhir
During the renovations in 1992 at the Church of "Our Lady Al Colle", carried out by the regional authority for the protection of monuments, the Laces Menhir (dating between 3300-2200 BC) was discovered. The Laces Menhir is made from pure marble and, apart from symbolizing the Adige Mountain Group; it is also linked to the Lombard Valcamonica Mountain Group. This artefact attests to the cultural links that have been interconnected in this mountain region for thousands of years in what is today the Stelvio National Park.

Cupule Rocks
In the region between Coldrano/Goldrain and Castelbello on Monte Sole and the Martello Valley, numerous cupule rocks were found dating from between the Neolithic period and the Bronze Age. The significance of these prehistoric cup formations on the rock surfaces is unknown. Nowadays there are various interpretations for these prehistoric formations, which are believed to have been connected with forms of religious worship or may also have served more pragmatic purposes.
