A Giant from the folklore of Croatia. His name means ‘Big Joe’ and lived as a warrior in the town of Istra Peninsula in Motovun. He developed a hatred for the lord of the region. He thus went to the town of the Lord and arrived at a gate tower that was locked. He shook the gate tower until it began to topple and lean to one side like the Tower of Pisa. The Lord then had Veli Joze arrested and suspended him above the torrent of a ravine.
