An ancient wayshrine in the olive grove of Arco, known for its peculiar "sombrero" hat. 
This strange and ancient shrine, located at a crossroads of farm roads just behind Villa Angerer, was an important landmark for travelers at the time of the Austrian “Curort”, as it had been for centuries prior, a curious testimony of a religious object with practical use. The “Regola” (literally, “Standard”) was an old collective property management institution at the local level, and this shrine marked the location for official meetings of all involved peasants.
