The location of the Stoanernen Mandln (stone men) is a popular hiking destination in the Sarntal Alps. Hiking to the site starts in the village of Verano/Vöran.
The little stone men, as in other parts of South Tyrol, often served as a means of orientation, or were built by shepherds as a pastime. But only here, above the villages on the mountain plateau, such a concentration of small stone pyramids can be found. Some even still preserve prehistoric characteristics. Previously, it was believed that there was a witches’ gathering place here.
