Geocache Description:




Canal Caveira

Num tempo não muito distante, antes da conclusão da A2 - Auto-Estrada do Sul, várias eram as estradas que cruzavam o Alentejo de Norte para Sul e eram pontos de passagem obrigatória para quem queria chegar ao Algarve ou regressar ao Norte.

 

Hoje chamadas de IPs e ICs, elas continuam lá e são a escolha de muita gente que não vai apressada e aproveita para poupar dinheiro na Auto-Estrada ou para quem tem alguma coisa a tratar no Alentejo.

Tal como as áreas de serviço das auto-estradas, nas estradas nacionais também existem locais propícios a que se faça uma paragem, quer seja para abastecer, comer ou simplesmente descansar. Um deles é Canal Caveira, uma pequena localidade que se desenvolveu bastante graças à proximidade da estrada e que serve de ponto de referência às paragens programadas dos viajantes.
 Alguns km a Sul está situada a área de serviço de Canal Caveira. Noutros tempos muito bem apetrechada, hoje em dia os serviços estão mais reduzidos mas continua a ser um bom local de paragem para abastecer e agora , para procurar uma cache.

In a non very distant past, before the conclusion of the A2- South Motorway, there were several roads crossing Alentejo from North to South and were mandatory passing points for who wanted to get to Algarve or return to the North.

 

Nowadays called IPs and ICs, the roads are still there and are picked by who is not in a hurry and decides to save some money in the Motorway, or by who has something to do in Alentejo.

 

Just like the service stations in the motorways, in the national roads there are also some proper places to make a stop, no mather it's for refuel, eat or just take some rest. One of this places is Canal Caveira, a small village that significantly developed thanks to the proximity of the road and is a reference point in the travellers programed stops.
A few km to the South it's located Canal Caveira's service station. Well equiped in the past, today the services are quite reduced mas it's still a good place to refuel and now, hunt a cache.
