Located in As Nieves on Rota Island, ancient Chamorro megalithic pillars can be found and are known as Latte Stones. Said to be used as pillars for thatched homes, round top caps measure about 6 feet across and pillar base about 8-10 feet tall weighing in the tons. Theories abound as to the methods and tools used in the carving out of these rocks from limestone without metal tools, and the cause of the stoppage in the raising of these Latte Stones.
