Geocache Description:



A LENDA DO CABO DA ROCA

A fadinha

Conta a lenda, que perto do Cabo da Roca, desapareceu de casa de sua mãe, um menino, cuja idade rondava os cinco anos, sem que sua triste mãe pudesse saber onde ele estava. Já o presumia caído de alto penhasco abaixo no mar, e afogado. Já o deplorava morto.

Mas a verdade era outra. Umas bruxas o tinham tirado de sua casa e lançaram-no num despenhadeiro num monte sobre o mar.

Aos choros que o menino dava, acudiram uns pastores de gado que rapidamente deram a noticia à vila. De lá saíram muitos aldeões com a desconsolada mãe para socorrerem o pobre menino.

Para o tirarem do buraco que parecia de fundo inacessível foi uma tarefa complicada, mas rapidamente o conseguiram. Todos alegres por o verem são e salvo logo a mãe lhe perguntou quem o tinha posto ali; e quem lhe dera de comer durante tanto tempo. O menino explicou que tinham sido umas mulheres que o tinham trazido pelo ar e o tinham atirado para a tal cova, porém, disse que uma senhora, muito formosa, todos os dias lhe levava umas sopinhas de cravos para ele comer.

Depois da história explicada e tudo estar resolvido, toda a aldeia mais a mãe e o menino dirigiram-se à igreja para agradecer a Nossa Senhora tudo ter acabado em bem. Ao entrar na igreja e vendo a Senhora no altar o menino disse com estas formais palavras: "Ó mãe, eis ali a senhora que todos os dias me dava as sopinhas de cravo para eu comer".

A cache - Não se encontra num despenhadeiro mas sim num local de cortar a respiração, bem como todo este local que bem conhecemos.

Existem pequenos trilhos até ao local por isso peço que não pisem a flora do local.


Cabo da Roca legend

There is a legend that says that near Cabo da Roca, a little boy disappeared from his mother's house, without his sad mother being able to know where he was. He was already presumed to have fallen down high to the sea and drowned.
But the truth was different. Some witches had taken him from his house and cast him into a cliff on a hill above the sea.
His cry was heard by the shepherds that quickly gave the news to the village. Many villagers with their disconsolate mother came out to help the poor boy. Getting it out of the seemingly inaccessible bottom hole was a complicated task, but they quickly succeeded. Everyone was glad to see him safe and sound, and soon his mother asked him who had put him there, and how he has eaten all that time. The boy explained that they had been women who had brought him up and thrown him into such a grave, but said that a very beautiful lady would bring him carnation soups every day for him to eat.
After the story was explained and all was settled, the whole village plus the mother and the boy went to the church to thank Our Lady for all that was well. Upon entering the church and seeing the Lady at the altar the boy said with these formal words: "Look mother, there is the lady who gave me the carnation soups every day for me to eat."

The cache - It is not in a cliff but in a breathtaking place, as well as all this place we know well.
There are small trails to the site so I ask you not to trample the flora of the place.
