Geocache Description:

Alterações feitas a 03/01/2014 - ATT, mudança de lugar.

Esta cache destina-se a mostrar uma belissíma fonte, inserida num espaço misto de lazer e trabalho (Tanques de lavar a roupa) num local onde o painel de azuleijos nos mostra um pouco de história onde não faltam as mulheres lavando roupa na ribeira ou os burros a ajudar a retirar agua dos poços num terreno uns metros mais acima. Ainda existem dois desses aparelhos de extrair agua no local.

O local é muito agradável de visitar e é possível observar as râs na ribeira de água limpa... limpa se não estiverem a lavar roupa pois os tanques despejam a água para a ribeira.

Os azuleijos novos e o "brazão" do barco são muito interessante e merecem um olhar mais detalhado.

Para mim, esta é uma das fontes obrigatórias nos passeios de Btt aqui na zona para reabastecimento e um pouco de descanso.

A cache contém, para começar, logbook, material de escrita e três moedas mexicanas para os primeiros traders, ia colocar mais mas depois do que aconteceu noutra minha cache, fica assim!


This cache is intended to show a beautiful fountain, set in a space both recreation and work (Tanks wash clothes) in a place where the tiles panel shows a bit of history where there are many women washing clothes in river or donkeys to help remove water from wells on land a few meters above. There are still two of these devices to extract water at the site.
The site is very nice to visit and you can see frogs in the stream of clean water ... clean if not for the washing tanks pour water into the stream.
The new tiles and the boat "crest" are very interesting and deserve a closer look.
To me, this is one of the special fountains for mountain biking here in the area to water resupply and rest a little.
The cache contains logbook, writing material and three Mexican coins for the first traders, I wish I could put in some more but after what happened in another cache…
