Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

This cache has been archived.

SUp3rFM: Esta cache foi arquivada por falta de uma resposta atempada e/ou adequada. Relembro a secção das guidelines sobre a manutenção :

You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time – normally a few weeks – in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.

Because of the effort required to maintain a geocache, we ask that you place physical caches in your usual caching area and not while on a vacation or business trip. It is best when you live within a manageable distance from the cache placements to allow for return visits. Geocaches placed during travel may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan, which must allow for a quick response to reported problems. An acceptable maintenance plan might include the username of a local geocacher who will handle maintenance issues in your absence.

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que o "desarquivamento" de uma cache, e a sua eventual consequente reactivação, passa pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines indicam.

Se no local existe algum container, por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Abraço e obrigado pela sua contribuição.

Geocache Description:

A Capela de Nossa Senhora da Luz situa-se no bairro da Covina, Freguesia de Santa Iria da Azóia, Loures.

A Covina nasce em Setembro de 1936, fruto da fusão de 7 fábricas, que se dedicavam à produção de vidro plano pelo processo manual do cilindro soprado.
Em 1962 o grupo Saint-Gobain torna-se accionista de uma parte do capital (20%) da Covina. Esta participação foi mantida aquando da nacionalização em 1975.
Em 1991, a Cristaleria Española, S.A empresa do Grupo Saint—Gobain adquiria maioria do capital da Covina, com a compra da participação do estado Português na sociedade.

O bairro foi construido para os trabalhadores desta empresa, que em 1949 estava em plena expansão e crescimento.
Para além dos blocos de apartamentos, a empresa construiu também, para os seus moradores, uma escola e uma capela.

Esta capela, de reduzidas dimensões, faz parte da paróquia de Santa Iria da Azóia.
