Geocache Description:


Ponte da Barca fica situada no Alto Minho deve o seu topónimo à "barca" que fazia a ligação entre as duas margens do Rio Lima, muitas vezes peregrinos a caminho de Santiago de Compostela, sendo a "ponte" construída em meados do séc. XV que lhe vai dar o nome de S. João de Ponte da Barca (1450).

Terra rica, fidalga, de feição arejada, as Terras da Nóbrega viram nascer junto ao bucólico Lima os irmãos Bernardes, Diogo e Agostinho, poetas da paisagem, das fontes e da saudade.

A cache encontra-se nas imediações do Jardim dos Poetas (é só descer a rampa!)

PONTE DA Barca is located in the northern part of Minho, this town owes its name to the “barca” - small boat which made the connection between both sides of the Lima River, many times with pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, and to the “ponte” - bridge, built in mid XV century which will give this town the name of S. Joao de Ponte da Barca (1450).

 A land rich in traditions, the Lands of the Nobrega saw the birth of the Bernardes brothers, Diogo and Agostinho, poets.

 The cache can be found near the “Jardim dos Poetas” (Garden of Poets).
