Geocache Description:


Esta é uma série de caches inspirados na preservação ferroviaria, que, além de proporcionar tudo o que o geocaching oferece, como aventura, diversão e motivo para conhecermos lugares novos, também nos incentiva a descobrir ( ou re-descobrir ) o mundo das ferrovias, que tanto foram úteis nos primórdios do desenvolvimento de nosso país.

O cache dos imigrantes é o primeiro da série. Esse local é bastante significativo e importante nessa história, pois era o local onde chegaram muitos dos imigrantes que fizeram parte do crescimento da cidade de São Paulo e do interior do estado.

Os imigrantes ( Portugueses, Espanhois, Italianos, Japoneses, Alemães, entre outros ), chegavam ao Brasil em navios que atracavam no porto de Santos, e de lá, vinham para São Paulo e daqui, para o interior do estado onde iam trabalhar nas fazendas de café.

A viagem de Santos à São Paulo era feita de trem, através de uma linha da SPR - São Paulo Railway, contruída pelo Barão de Mauá e engenheiros ingleses, no fim do século 19, que inicialmente servia para transporte de carga ( Café ), do interior de São Paulo para o porto de Santos. O tracho da subida da serra foi uma espetecular obra de engenharia, que dividiu a serra em segmentos de aclive, ligados por patamares onde ficavam grandes máquinas a vapor, que puxavam os trens através de cabos de aço, até a estação do topo da serra ( Paranapiacaba ).

Chegando à cidade de São Paulo, os imigrantes eram acolhidos no que era então a "Hospedaria dos Imigrantes". Lá tinham dormitório, alimentação, tratamento médico, além de ter seus documentos regularizados e conseguirem empregos.

Hoje o local foi transformado no Memorial do Imigrante, e conta com museu, lanchonete, lojas e uma unidade da ABPF ( Associação Brasileira de Preservação Ferroviária ), que mantém a estação original, e todo o material ferroviário. A ABPF promove um passeio de trem a vapor aos sábados domingos e feriados, com os mesmos carros utilizados na época da imigração.

O local fica aberto de terça a domingo, das 10 as 17 horas, e cobra entrada. ( No último sabado de cada mês a entrada é gratuita )

This is a series of caches inspired by the railway preservation, which, besides providing all the geocaching offers, such as adventure, fun and reason to know new places, also encourages us to discover (or rediscover) the world of railways, that were very important to the early development of our country.

The cache of immigrants is the first of the series. This location is very significant and important in this story because it was the place where many immigrants came who participated in the growth of the city of Sao Paulo and in the state.

Immigrants (Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, German, etc.), arrived in Brazil on ships that docked at the port of Santos, and from there, came to Sao Paulo and from there to the country side of the state where they went to work on coffee plantations.

The journey from Santos to Sao Paulo was made by train, through a line of the SPR - Sao Paulo Railway, built by the Baron of Maua and English engineers in the late 19th century, which originally served to transport cargo (Coffee), from the Sao Paulo country side to the port of Santos. The ascent of the mountain was a espetecular engineering project, which split the mountain in segments of slope, connected by plateaus where they were big steam engines that pulled trains through steel cables, to the station on top of the mountain ( Paranapiacaba).

Arriving at the city of Sao Paulo, immigrants were welcomed into what was then the "Hostel of Immigrants." There were dorm, food, medical treatment, in addition to their documents and get settled jobs.

Today the site was transformed into the Immigration Museum, and has a museum, cafeteria, shops and a unit of ABPF (Brazilian Association of Railway Preservation), which maintains the original station, and all the rolling stock. The ABPF promotes a ride steam train on Saturdays Sundays and holidays, with the same cars used at the time of immigration.

The site is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 17 hours, and charge entry. (Last Saturday of each month admission is free)
