It's called monk, for it's special shape that looks like a man praying. Seems there is a legend, a myth about this stone that tell different. Most people and historyc especially, consider it like one of others menhir distributed in the south area of Italy. But this one seems special, not because the story is recognised by Historian, but because, goes around a story that it is a virgin girl that for saving the village has prayed so long without moving and she has been transformed in stone by God.

Personally i believe that is an invented story.

What do you know about menhir? Let me know, i'm looking for mith, leggend and so on around those special object from the past.
