A 300-year old barn was devastated when several huge boulders broke away from a cliff face and rolled down a hillside in Tramin, northern Italy last week.

The barn, along with farm vehicles and machinery were completely destroyed when four thousand cubic metres of rock plunged down a hillside. No one was injured in the incident, but the owner of the estate Baon Philipp von Hohenb├╝hel told a local newspaper that the rockfall has done millions of euros worth of damage

One of the large chunks of rock stopped just a couple of feet short of the main house, narrowly missing a vehicle parked close by.
