Sacred places are just that. In general, anyplace in the normal world (which is made of "mixed matter") where a significant type of magic prevails is sacred. These are often the places where a specific story occurred, sort of "freezing in" its primal or original content. "In those hills is where Mrs. Rabbit dug her warren, so it is now a spirit place." Or perhaps, "That is where Vingkot stuck his spear butt into the ground," and so it is divinely blessed.
>The odd strange occurance see above to give you clues this was a marked site?
If you did not know that the appearance was particularly associated with one world or another then it would look ordinary, but certainly strange effects would occur. Extraordinary beings live there. It might be strong enough to exert an alien modifier!
