Oh Hill!

madonna-rockLast summer, after a chunk of rock broke off the cliff during a small landslide, visitors to the small town of Casaletto Spartano, Italy, noticed something the locals hadn’t – an image in the rocks  they thought looked like the Virgin Mary. Since then hundreds of visitors have shown up to check out the “Madonna of the Rock” according to La Citta di Salerno website. Strangely, the rock happens to sit just below a path used by local people during religious processions.

“We don’t know what it is,” a villager told the Italia 2 news channel, “but the more you look at it the more it looks like a real Madonna,” including hands and a cloak hanging down.

When a local website asked a buzzkill geologist for his take on it he said “it’s a simple matter of erosion occurring over several millennia.”
