Geocache Description:


[Por] Ao procurar esta cache vai visitar o Monte de S. Gens situado no concelho da Trofa, apreciar as vistas dos vales envolventes e sobretudo divertir-se.

A estrutura geológica do concelho é fortemente marcada pelas serras de xisto que culminam em unidades de elevado valor paisagístico e com excelentes bacias visuais, das quais se destaca o Monte de S. Gens ou de Cidai, à cota máxima de 202 m.

No Monte de S. Gens, usufrui-se de um vasto e deslumbrante panorama que se estende sobre a fértil planície do aluvião principal, a cidade da Trofa, Ribeirão, em V. N. de Famalicão, e as serras de Vale e Cabrito já na freguesia de Covelas. Possui um farto manto florestal, formado maioritariamente por pinheiros e eucaliptos, que se estende pelas serras envolventes.

Neste monte localiza-se, também, uma capela associada ao santo padroeiro do mesmo nome, realizando-se uma romaria anual no 1º domingo de Setembro.

Se for um adepto do BTT vai ver que não faltam trilhos pelas redondezas, pode trazer a sua bicicleta e fazer uns drops.

[Eng] Searching for this cache you will visit S. Gens Mountain which is located in Trofa municipality, apreciate the sights of the surrounding valleys and most of all have fun.

The geological structure of the municipality is strongly marked by schist mountain ranges that culminate on units of strong scenical value and excelent visual basins, of which we can name the S. Gens de Cidai Mountain, with a maximum hight of 202 meters.

On S. Gens Mountain we enjoy a vast and stunning scenery that spreads over the fertile alluvion planes, Trofa city, Ribeirão in V. N. de Famalicão and the Vale and Cabrito mountain ranges in Covelas parish. It has an abundant florestal cover above all made up of pine trees and eucalyptus that spreads over the surrounding mountains.

On this mountain there's a chapel associated with the saint patron that takes the same name and every year on the first sunday of September there's a pilgrimage.

If you like MTB you will find lots of paths, you can bring your bicycle to do some drops.
