Geocache Description:


Cabeça do Velho [Caras de Pedra]


  Altitude - 1200 metros 




A Serra da Estrela é fértil em formações rochosas e rochedos famosos. Existem entre muitos outros o conjunto dos cântaros (Magro, Gordo e Raso), o Poio do Judeu, a Pedra do Urso, o Lapão da Ronca, a Fraga do Padre-Nosso e as cabeças do Faraó, do Negro, do Velho, Velha e do (outro) Velho. A finalidade deste conjunto de 5 caches é precisamente dar a conhecer estas cinco últimas, as "Caras de Pedra".
