By trying to overcome the possible limitations on their form or religious aspects, the article analyzes wayside shrines and chapels as ways of inhabiting and symbolizing space, as places of social interaction and as monuments, i.e. places which preserve and generate memories on the events meaningful for the community which erected them. Even though they are not monumental in form or erected in order to preserve a memory of some major event, but rather through initiative of certain individuals governed by religious motifs, the research data have shown that they embody the ideas the community has of itself which, in certain historical periods, surpass the frameworks of local space and time and reflect the processes of supra-local identification.
