Geocache Description:



Cette cache est dédiée à la ville de Barbazan et à son patron : l' Archange Saint-Michel.
Prenez le chemin du vieux cimetière et garez vous  position :

43° 02 147
000° 37 697

Avant de vous garer, (attention : ça monte !), vous passerez devant le Château de Barbazan, que vous verrez à votre droite, et plus loin, cette statue de terre cuite de l’ Archange Saint-Michel, située sur les hauteurs du village, en face de l'entrée du château.
Elle aurait été mise en place lors d'une mission, entre 1850 et 1880.
L’image de l’ Archange Saint-Michel, dont le nom signifie « Qui est comme Dieu ? », est présente dans plusieurs endroits du village. (La forme interrogative est importante, car nul ne saurait se proclamer semblable à Dieu.)
Seul Michel est appelé « l'archange » ou ange en chef dans la bible canonique. Il est aussi appelé : Prince des Archanges, Archange du Premier Rayon, Défenseur de la Foi. Il est le prince de tous les bons anges, le chef des forces du ciel, des armées célestes, le Champion du Bien.

Admirez la vue avant de vous mettre en quête du "trésor", parce qu’elle le mérite !

Bon Géocaching !

**************************************************************************
This cache is dedicated to Barbazan and its saint : Archangel St. Michael .
Take the path to the old cemetary and park your car position:

N 43° 02 147
E 000° 37 697.

Before getting to the parking place, (be careful, it is quite a climb!), you will pass le Château de Barbazan, that you will see on your right, and farther, this terracotta statue of St. Michael the Archangel, located on the heights of the village, opposite the entrance of the Château.
It was supposedly erected during a mission, between 1850 and 1880.
The image of St. Michael the Archangel, whose name means “Who is like God?”can be seen at various places in the town. (The question mark is important because no one can declare himself to be like God).
Only Michael is called “archangel” or chief angel in the canonical Bible. He is also known as Prince of Archangels, Archangel of the First Ray, Defender of Faith. He is the Prince of all good angels, the Chief of heaven forces, the Champion of Good.
Enjoy the view before you start looking for the “treasure”, because it is worth it!

Happy Geocaching!
