In Österreich, wie in der ganzen katholischen Welt, gibt es jede Menge von Marterl.
Manche sind wirklich alt, manche aus der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts, manche tatsächlich sehenswert, manche eher nur kitschig.

Das Marienmarterl, das ich entdeckt habe, ist zumindest ganz hübsch.

Danke für die Safari!

Greece, or at least Corfu, is littered with these wayside shrines. This one (N39° 46.070  E19° 52.795) hails from Palia Perithia, a formerly abandoned town, now slowly coming alive again, mainly with and due to all the tourists visiting this picturesque spot. During our hike on the Corfu Trail, Fl0ydt and I were two of them.

TFTC & greets from Erkrath!

Cache #8000 (approx.)
