Geocache Description:

This cache is on the top of a prominent hill near the village of Faz Fato. To reach it you need to follow a rough track. It is about a 1km walk from the nearest tarmac road. There are fantastic views in all directions. You can see Spain, the bridge across the Guadiana and the rolling hills of the Algarve hinterland. Please look at the photo gallery.

This is a small cache (white plastic tub approximately 5cm across by 12cm deep) containing a notepad, pen and a selection of interesting coins to swap. At the time of hiding, these were
  • Portuguese 25 escudos (1980)
  • South Africa 2 cents (1965)
  • Barbados 1 cent (1987)
  • Singapore 5 cents (1971)
  • Vietnamese 1 dong (1971)
  • Canadian 1 cent (1964)
  • British 1 new penny (1982)
  • USA 1 cent (1970)
