Geocache Description:



Situadas a montante de Mértola, as azenhas do Mértola, no rio Guadiana, aproveitaram, durante séculos, as correntes vindas de norte para transformar o cereal em farinha. Depois de perderem o seu papel principal estas transformaram-se em local de lazer, sendo o último ponto do Guadiana a sofrer a influência da maré.
         Apesar de se considerar apenas como estuário a zona entre a foz em Vila Real de Santo António e o Pomarão, o açude das Azenhas de Mértola é o ultimo local do Guadiana onde claramente se sente o efeito das marés do atlântico.
         Este é um local de descanso por eleição e mantenha-o como tal. Se tomar banho no Guadiana preste total atenção às suas correntes especialmente se tiver crianças consigo.

Located at upstream of Mértola, the water mills of Mértola, at the Guadiana river, toke advantage, for centuries, of the currents from north to transform the grain into flour. After losing its primary role they have become a site of leisure, and the last point of the Guadiana from the influence of the tide.
         Although it is considered as estuary the area between the mouth in Vila Real de Santo Antonio and Pomarão, the dam of Azenhas of Mértola is the last place where the Guadiana clearly feel the effect of the tides of the Atlantic.
         This is a place to rest for election and keep it as such. If bathing in the Guadiana give full attention to its current especially if you have children with you.
