Geocache Description:

PT - Esta cache está situada no Parque do Tejo, entre a Torre Vasco da Gama e a Ponte Vasco da Gama.

EN - This cache is located in the Parque do Tejo, between the Torre Vasco da Gama and the Ponte Vasco da Gama.

O terreno e a dificuldade são ambos fáceis. Podem deslocar-se até ela a pé da Gare do Oriente ou mesmo do apeadeiro de Moscavide. Há também bastantes lugares de estacionamento perto da cache, incluindo o parque de estacionamento subterrâneo do Centro Comercial Vasco da Gama.

Terrain and difficulty are both easy. The cache is located in easy walking distance from the Oriente train/metro station or the train station in Moscavide. Also, parking is relatively plentiful in the area, including the underground car park in the Vasco da Gama Mall.

Atravessando o Rio Tejo naquela que é praticamente a zona de maior distância entre as duas margens, com 17 kms de largura, a Ponte Vasco da Gama é uma impressionante obra de engenharia.

Spanning the Rio Tejo at virtually it's widest point, at over 17 kms in length, the Vasco da Gama bridge is an impressive feat of engineering.

A ponte foi aberta ao público no dia 29 de Março de 1998, pouco depois da Expo 98 em Lisboa. A Expo 98 celebrou os 500 anos da descoberta por Vasco da Gama do caminho marítimo para a Índia.

The bridge was opened to the public on March 29 1998 shortly prior to the World Expo 98 in Lisbon. The 98 Expo celebrated the 500th anniversary of Vasco da Gama's discovery of a sea route from Europe to India.

Esta cache está situada praticamente a meio caminho entre a Torre Vasco da Gama e a Ponte Vasco da Gama. Regista a tua visita e tira uma fotografia da ponte. Se puderes, leva contigo um afia-lápis, caso algum dos lápis precise de ser afiado - não conseguimos que o afia-lápis coubesse na cache.

This cache is located about half way between the Torre Vasco da Gama (tower) and the Ponte Vasco da Gama (bridge). Log your visit and take a picture of the bridge. Take a pencil sharpener with you if you can in case one of the pencils needs sharpening - We couldn't fit one in the cache.

Initials and date only in the logbook please, and please write small to conserve space. Please also use the backs of the pages.
