Geocache Description:


SANGUINHO

O Sanguinho, antigo aglomerado populacional pertencente à freguesia do Faial da Terra, agora em fase de recuperação com fins de turismo em espaço rural, é um local com elevado grau de misticismo onde se testemunha o conceito de ruralidade e pacatez por excelência. É um lugar visitado por turistas de todo o mundo onde, actualmente, se realizam magníficos passeios pedestres até ao que se pode designar por “Paraíso Perdido” que é o Salto do Prego, e por toda a zona do Faial da Terra, uma área a explorar face à diversidade de trilhos existentes. O seu nome advém da existência, em abundância no local, da planta Sanguinho (Frangula azorica), usada na tinturaria. O Faial da Terra sempre foi uma freguesia muito ligada à agricultura e como tal, o trilho homologado era o percurso, por excelência, efectuado pelos agricultores que iam cultivar as terras. Na altura, não haviam transportes, nem tão pouco estradas de acesso às terras que geravam o ganha-pão das famílias dos agricultores.
