Geocache Description:

Castelo de Penajóia

A cache situa-se num afloramento rochoso construído pela natureza, que dá pelo nome de “Castelo dos Mouros”. Dizem os mais antigos que ali se travaram muitas batalhas, mas a lenda mais conhecida reza, que no castelo existiam grutas subterrâneas, onde uma moura guardou duas talhas, uma era a talha da riqueza e a outra a da peste, que mataria quem a encontrasse e destruiria toda a freguesia.

The cache is located on a rocky outcrop built by nature, which goes by the name of "Moorish Castle. They say the older ones who were there fought many battles, but the legend best known says, that in the castle existed underground caves, where a Moorish saved two jars, one was the carving of wealth and the second is the plague that would kill those who find and destroy the entire neighborhood.

Para chegar ao castelo, após chegar à freguesia da Penajóia, terá apenas de seguir as indicações que o referem, até chegar ao waypoint, seguindo mais 1,5Kms por um caminho de terra batida, contudo com precaução é possível chegar ao local num carro ligeiro. Para chegar à cache não aconselhamos, ir à noite, em dias em que o terreno possa estar molhado, nem que se façam acompanhar de crianças, uma vez que poderá ser perigoso na subida para o ponto zero, e posteriormente na descida.

To reach the castle, after reaching the village of Penajoia, you just follow the directions that relate to arrive at the waypoint, following a further 1.5 kms along a dirt road, but with caution you can reach the scene in a car light . To reach the cache does not advise, go at night, on days when the ground can be wet, or that are accompanied by children, since they can be dangerous on the way up to the zero point, and later in the fall.
