Geocache Description:




This series of caches introduces the cacher to Lagos by way of the 6 Juntas de Freguesia, each of which has a multi-cache which includes an extra digit which will lead to a bonus cache in Lagos area.

The six caches are:
#1- Luz

#2-Barão de São João



#5-Lagos: São Sebastião

#6-Lagos: Santa Maria



#5 - São Sebastião


São Sebastião is the northern of the two urban parishes which divide the city of Lagos, the other being Santa Maria.  Invoking economies within the council, it was decided that each of them would share a common office building, and indeed they do,(and which is at the published coordinates) the only discernible difference being that there are two desks within the office, each being the public point of contact one of the parishes, and heaven help the person who approaches the Santa Maria Parish desk with a question concerning São Sebastião and vice versa! 

Thus, this cache and #6 -Santa Maria START in the same location, but have a different set of questions to answer, and of course different final caches, each within the confines of their own parish.

More information about  São Sebastião can be found by clicking:

    Junta de Freguesia de São Sebastião

The cache begins at the published coordinates where the information to answer the following questions may be found:-

i    Number of flagpoles                                                                A-1
ii Registrations of cars permitted to park in Disabled Car Spaces        BC-EP-DE
The final cache may be found at;-  N37º (E)(C).(B-F)(H-G)(F)
                                                    W008º  (C-A)(B).(I-C)(D)(C)

Inside the log book is the number which corresponds to 'E' in the Bonus Cache.
