Historia / History

Não vem nos roteiros turísticos da área de Lisboa mas é um bonito palácio praticamente à porta da capital. A vila do Sobralinho pertence ao concelho de Vila Franca de Xira e situa-se entre as freguesias de Alverca e Alhandra, ocupando uma área de 4,2km2.

You won't find it in the tourist guides for the area of Lisbon but it's a beautiful palace near the capital. Sobralinho village is part of the Vila Franca de Xira district and is situated between Alverca and Alhandra, occupying an area of 4,2 square kilometers.

O Palácio fica na Quinta Municipal do Sobralinho, localizada no limite norte da freguesia. O edifício data do século XVII, quando foi fundado pelos condes de Vila Flor (depois Duques de Terceira).

The palace is located in Quinta Municipal do Sobralinho, which is on the northern side of the village. It was founded in the XVII century by the Counts of Vila Flor (later Dukes of Terceira).

No século seguinte foi alvo de uma remodelação. Mais tarde, em 1944, foi vítima de um incêndio que obrigou à sua reedificação e remodelação, com colecções de arte. Graças a Ricardo Espírito Santo Silva, que adquiriu o imóvel, o Palácio do Sobralinho é um dos pontos de maior interesse patrimonial do concelho.

It was remodeled in the next century. Later, in 1944, an inferno destroyed the entire building which was then rebuilt and remodeled, with art collections. Thanks to Ricardo Espírito Santo Silva, who bought the building, Palácio do Sobralinho is one of the most interesting places in the district.

A Quinta Municipal do Sobralinho está aberta de segunda a sexta entre as 8h00 e as 18h00 e aos sábados, domingos e feriados entre as 10h00 e as 18h00.

The Quinta Municipal do Sobralinho is open from monday to friday between 8h00 and 18h00 and on saturdays, sundays and holidays from 10h00 to 18h00.

A Cache / The Cache

Esta cache é uma multi-cache com duas etapas terminando com um pequeno tupperware plástico de 0.3L. A primeira etapa está localizada nas coordenadas indicadas e nesta micro vão encontrar as coordenadas para a cache final.

The cache is a two stage multi-cache ending with a small, 0.3L, plastic container. The first stage is located at the published co-ordinates, and in this micro you will find the final cache co-ordinates.

O sinal do GPS não é muito forte na localização final - provavelmente vão ter que calcular o ponto final num local próximo onde tenham melhor cobertura do satélite. As coordenadas finais foram obtidas através de uma média de dois pontos opostos e equidistantes da localização final.

Satellite reception is not good at the final location - you will probably have to work out the final location from a short distance away where you can get better coverage. The final co-ordinates were obtained by averaging, at 2 points on opposite sides and equidistant from the cache location.

O conteúdo inicial da cache final é o seguinte:
Log book
Stash-note
Lápis
Afia-lápis
Vários itens para troca

The initial content of the final cache is as follows:
Log book
Stash-note
Pencils
Pencil sharpener
Various trade items

Por favor coloquem a micro da primeira etapa exactamente como a encontraram de modo a que o próximo geocacher a consiga alcançar. Por favor certifiquem-se de que escondem bem a cache final depois de a visitarem para que esta não seja encontrada por muggles.

Please place the first stage micro back exactly as you found it, careful not to make it unreachable for the next geocacher. Please be sure to hide the final cache very well after your visit to ensure it is not muggled.
