Geocache Description:

Para os meus amigos portugueses eu pus uma Hiperligação à tradução dos textos das minhas caches completas. Clique em cima ao "Related Web Page".

  Do you know to pray a rosary? Not? OK, but you have to have one. Whats about your parents or grandparents? To make it unitary, you may use the image Spoiler1) in the gallery. Do not respect the beige pearls, they represent the chain.
  Your target is in the near of one of the biggest rosary I’ve ever seen. It must weigh hundreds of kilos.

  To get the coordinates of the cache you have to work a little bit with the rosary. What you need are 6 numbers:

  Number 1: number of black pearls in the extension plus number of cross
  Number 2: number of black pearls in the circle divided by 25
  Number 3: number of red pearls in the circle
  Number 4: total number of pearls plus number of cross divided by 15
  Number 5: number of red pearls in the circle multiplied by 2
  Number 6: total number of red pearls minus number of cross
  Insert these 6 numbers into the coordinates as follows:
  N: 32° 45.nº1 nº2 nº3
  W: 017° 05.nº4 nº5 nº6
  The coordinates are in minutes and decimal minutes, not in minutes and seconds!

You got the coordinates? All right, let’s visit Nossa Senhora da Serra. You can see her while driving the ER 110 (Estrada Regional) from Encumeada pass to Rabaçal (the place where are hundreds of muggles). “Hope it helps” shows you a good position to leave ER 110, spoiler 2 helps you too. Look at the south side of the road for her pedestal. It’s looking like a pyramid.
  Although the place is very seldom visited, keep in mind this is a place of devotion.
