Geocache Description:

Fonte Férrea de Cachopo

A 40 quilómetros de Tavira, Cachopo é uma freguesia orgulhosa do seu passado de estância de repouso de águas férreas milagrosas para maleitas de saúde. É daí que vem o nome  fonte. A Fonte Férrea datada de 1820 está situada num vale rodeado de árvores e com um riacho que corre durante quase todo o ano. À sua volta podemos observar sobreiros, palmeiras, oliveiras e vegetação silvestre.
Foi um local de lazer para os algarvios abastados fartos de viver à beira mar, que a procuravam pelas suas águas férreas em casos de anemia, e outras doenças provocadas pela deficiência em ferro.
É hoje um espaço agradável de visitar, possuindo uma piscina e espaço reservado a mesas para piquenique.

40 kilometres away from Tavira, Cachopo is a small village proud of its past as restful place with medicinal waters. Fonte Férrea dates back to 1820 and it's located in a valley surrounded by trees and a water stream flowing all year long. In the area you can observe cork-trees, palm-trees, olive-trees and wild vegetation.
Nowadays is a very pleasant place to visit, with a swimming pool and some picnic tables.
