Geocache Description:


Sobre esta ermida, devido à falta de informação, nada posso adiantar a não ser a sua localização no cimo do outeiro a sudoeste de Vila De Frades, esta ermida é um excelente exemplo da falta de iniciativa na divulgação e preservação na nossa cultura.

Quem a visita experimenta fortes sensações com sentimentos opostos: impotência e pequenez.

À nossa volta, a paisagem é de cortar a respiração. Vista soberbas de toda a planície do baixo Alentejo num ângulo de 360º. Outros locais existem na região com soberbas vistas, mas raros são os que nos disponibilizam com clareza todo o Alentejo.

Opostamente, e com o mesmo sentimento, somos tão pequenos que não temos força para contrariar o destino de tantas zonas, como esta, existentes no nosso país condenadas ao abandono e desolação.

O quão fracos somos, que pouco conseguiremos fazer ao observar património como este, a ser vandalisado e até mesmo, se assim poderemos dizer, profanado!

About this chapel, due to lack of information, nothing can be advanced unless its location at the top of the hill at southwest of Vila de Frades, this chapel is a perfect example about the lack of initiative in the divulgation and preservation of our culture.

The visitor will experience strong sensations with conflicting feelings: impotence and smallness.

Around us, the landscape cut’s our breath. We have a 360º superb site of the plains of the Alentejo. There are other locations in the region with gorgeous landscapes, but only a small few of them provide us sightseeing throughout the Alentejo with this clarity.

On the other hand, and with the same feeling, we realize that we are so small that we do not have strength to counter the fate of so many areas, such as this, existing in our country condemned to the abandonment and desolation.

How weak we are, that nothing more we can except observe how heritage like this, are vandalized and, if we are allowed to say it, desecrated!
