Geocache Description:


CASINHAS DE SANTANA

 


A cidade de Santana constitui uma localidade encantadora onde, ainda hoje, é possível encontrar as casinhas primitivas, sendo por isso um ponto obrigatório de visita turística. Estas casas são bastante coloridas, construídas em triângulo com pedra natural e cobertas com colmo (palha), foram usadas como estábulos e, algumas vezes, até como habitação.

Para os amantes da natureza é na zona alta deste concelho, mais concretamente no Parque Florestal das Queimadas que se fazem os mais bonitos passeios a pé, em veredas ladeadas pelas famosas levadas, com vistas magníficas e em plena floresta Laurissilva.

Assinalam-se os passeios que o levarão até à Achada do Garamacho, ao Caldeirão Verde, ao Caldeirão do Inferno, à Boca das Voltas, ao Pico das Pedras, à Reserva Natural da Rocha do Navio e a uma interessante formação rochosa de doze metros de altura, que é conhecida pelo nome de Homem em Pé.

Esta é uma cache drive-in que vos leva a conhecer as Casinhas de Santana, bem no centro da cidade.
Sejam discretos na procura da cache e deixem tudo como encontraram.
A manutenção desta cache  ficará a cargo do meu amigo Bacalhau


The City of Santana is an enchanting location, where the primitive houses can still be found today, a must see for all tourists. These houses are very  colorful, made of natural stone with triangle and covered with straw,  were used as stables and, sometimes, even as housing.

For nature lovers, in the  highest zone in the municipality, the Queimadas Forestal   Park is the place where  visitors can go for pleasant walks through paths and watercourses, with  magnificent views of the Laurissilva forest.

Some examples are the routes that  will take you to the Achada de Gramacho, Caldeirão Verde, Caldeirão do Inferno,  Boca das Voltas, Pico das Pedras, the Rocha do Navio Nature Reserve and an  interesting rock formation that is 12 meters high, and is known as the Homem em Pé.

This  drive-in cache is that you know leads to the Casinhas of Santana in the center of the city.
Be  discreet in finding the cache and leave everything as it was.
The maintenance of  this cache will be the responsibility of my friend Bacalhau
