Geocache Description:


Janelas [Sesimbra]

Esta cache irá levar-vos até à Lapa da Janelas, uma cavidade situada na encosta sul, entre Sesimbra e o Cabo Espichel. A intenção é dar-vos a conhecer este local e poderem apreciar a vista, que eu acho fantástica.

Sabe-se que estas grutas tiveram ocupação humana, nomeadamente na idade do ferro, facto comprovado pela série de vestígios arqueológicos encontrados no local. Mais recentemente foram usadas por pastores da zona (no local irão perceber isso...). Se forem atentos poderão ver outras duas cavidades que se situam na encosta do lado esquerdo do caminho.

O local é também frequentado por escaladores, pelo que peço que sejam discretos no caso de lá estar alguém.

Contem com algum erro nas coordenadas, mas não tem nada que enganar, a cache está escondida num buraco do lado esquerdo, a cerca de 4m do exterior. Em caso de dúvida vejam as fotos spoiler.

Estacionem o carro em: N 38 25.872 W 9 10.683
A partir daqui sigam a pé até N 38 25.734 W 9 10.615, neste ponto desçam, seguindo o muro. Depois de N 38 25.712 W 9 10.613, é só seguir o trilho.
No total devem descer cerca de 100m.

This cache will take you to the Lapa da Janelas, a small cave located south cliff, between Sesimbra and Cabo Espichel. The purpose is to show you this place, and give you an opportunity to enjoy the view, which i find amazing.

It's know that this caves were inhabited by humans, for example in the iron age. More recently it has been used by local shepherds (in the place you will notice that...). If you look carefully, you will find two other caves on the cliff, on the left side of the trail.

The place is also frequented by climbers, please be discreet if you find someone there.

Expect an error on the coordinates, but it's easy, the cache is hidden in a hole, on the left side, about 4m from outside. If you have any doubts look at the spoiler photos.
