Geocache Description:


No cimo do Bispo [São Brás de Alportel]


O vértice geodésico do Bispo, encontra-se a nordeste da vila de São Brás de Alportel, a 484 metros de altitude, e acolhe um dos mais bonitos miradouros naturais deste concelho. Trata-se de um espaço de repouso e observação da zona serrana do concelho, onde é possível desfrutar da magnífica paisagem sobre a Serra Algarvia, conhecer a fauna e a flora local, comungar de perto com os valores naturais e relembrar os cuidados a ter para proteger a Floresta, Riqueza Maior da Natureza.

Recomenda-se atenção redobrada nos últimos 200m de aproximação à cache, pois o troço de estrada encontra-se deteriorado, com algumas irregularidades, que porventura poderão danificar os veículos, especialmente os que não forem todo o terreno (TT).

Alerta-se também para o facto de o trilho de acesso à cache ser um percurso frequentemente utilizado para BTT, ao que se aconselha alguma prudência.



The Bishop geodetic landmark, it’s situated in the northeast of the town São Brás de Alportel, at 484 meters of altitude, and it welcomes visitors to one of the prettiest natural viewpoints of this district. It is a space of rest and observation of the mountain zone of the district, where it is possible to enjoy the magnificent scenery on the Algarve mountain range, know the fauna and the local flora, to take a close communion with the natural values, and to recall the cares needed to protect the Forest, the Biggest Wealth of the Nature.

Attention is recommended at the last 200m of approximation to the cache, since the road is spoilt, with some holes and stones, which by chance, will be able to damage the vehicles, especially those who aren’t off road vehicles (4x4).

I also alert for the fact that the access path to the cache is being frequently used for BTT, so some care is advised.
