Hi there.

I was searching a suitable tag to map this kinds of crosses, which are
always religious and most of the time historic:

They can be found in church yards, squares, streets, etc.

Now, according to the wiki, I have two options:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dcross  -> which seems
to be used only for summit crosses
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:historic%3Dwayside_cross ->
which seems to be used for a specific kind of cross that doesn't exist
in most countries (not in Portugal, for example).

So, how can I map the other more ubiquitous kind of cross?
