Geocache Description:

Esta cache encontra-se junto à Praia das Maçãs, uma das belas praias da costa de Sintra.

O nome da praia deve-se ao rio que lá desagua que, em tempos, trazia nas suas correntes fruta madura, nomeadamente maçãs, que caíam dos pomares de macieiras pelas quais o rio passava.

Anualmente, esta praia recebe a procissão em honra de Nossa Senhora da Praia.

Em redor da praia podem encontrar diversos restaurantes, cafés, pequenos bares e casas de artesanato local.
Há ainda uma piscina de água salgada que se encontra junto à praia.

A cache encontra-se numa zona de ruínas, com vista privilegiada sobre a praia.

This cache is placed near Praia das Maçãs (Apples beach), one of the beautiful beaches in Sintra coast.

The beach got its name from the river that ends there, because long ago it used to carry ripe fruit, including apples, that fell from the trees upstream.

Near the beach you can find various restaurants, cafés, bars and local workmanship shops.
There is also a salt water pool by the beach.

The annual procession in honor of Nossa Senhora da Praia (Our Lady of the Beach) takes place here.

The cache is in a zone of ruins, with a great view over the beach.
