Megalithic route to the

Megalithic garden

The Megalithic garden of Italy

Puglia retains about 150 megaliths, Giurdignano itself has more than 25. And the megalithic garden of Italy, one of the connecting links between Mediterranean and European megaliths. Sir Henry Dryden in 1868 also described Giurdignano in his "Menhirs and dolmens in the district of Otranto" on the basis of publications of Louis Maggiulli. The dolmens and menhirs in Apulia, but especially in this part of Salento became known throughout Europe by the first works connected to the romance movement. Understanding how many menhirs are in Giurdignano is a task - still - difficult. Some of them , still intact or reduced into ruins, are also preserved in houses, or courtyards and gardens. A village made of standing stones, you could say, where - in some cases - intact architectural elements consist of remains of megaliths. The menhirs officially counted are eighteen and the list includes nine now nameless. The others are: "Cross of Fausa" on the way to Otranto: Our Lady of Constantinople, at the namesake chapel, San Vincenzo, near the crypt of San Salvatore; Palanzano, at the rocky village located along the railway line: Herding, not locatable; Monte Tongolo, on the way to Otranto; Proximity Proximity 1 and 2, at the homonymous village and the menhirs of St. Paul. But just walking in the town and in the countryside, for example, already in the city center you can admire the menhirs of Vico Nuovo, the menhir of the Cross Fausa, set on a circular base, the one of Santa Maria of Constantinople and the menhir of St Vincent. Just outside the village we find the beautiful menhir of St. Paulo. It is one of the most interesting examples of religious syncretism. And one of the smallest megalithic monuments of Giurdignano ( two meters high), is situated on a rocky base. Because of its shape it is easy to see one of the main features of the standing stones in Giurdignano: all have a hole at the top. Like everyone else is built in East-West axis. The basement is fully excavated, this feature sets the stage for a theory that inside burial rituals had held, however there is no archaeological support that can confirm. Here a fresco depicts the theme of St. Paul and the tarantula, referring to the magical-religious cult of tarantism. We are therefore in the presence of an important example that shows the transition from the ancestral cults of the Mediterranean to the Christian. With the edict of Theodosius, in fact, the Christian religion becomes empire religion and ordering the demolition of worship pagan monuments including standing stones. The strong resistance of the population led to a compromise followed by the work of progressive "Christianization" of these places. If we look closely at this menhir we will see a cross engraved. Less than 400 mt. away is the menhir Proximity which owns two crosses engraved on the face to the South. After 300 mt., we meet the menhirs 2 Vicinity, a very impressive base and surrounded by olive trees. 1
