It is a group of megaliths in the Argimusco upland, close to Montalbano Elicona town.

They have been mainly formed by rain and wind erosion. Some of them have been modified by humans, but it is not known with certainty to what extent. The ancient inhabitants of these places, in an attempt to explain the nature of these large boulders in the midst of the earth, identified each of them with a figure or a symbol, surrounding with an aura of mystery items that in the end are simply rocks, but that fantasy can turn into something magic. In fact there are so many similarities with actual objects that these stonse can appear real "sculptures created by the Gods".
