[quote]
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 Geocaches placed during travel may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan, which must allow for a quick response to reported problems.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.[/quote]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=http://www.geocaching.com/email/?u=btreviewer]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que a eventual reactivação desta cache passará pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines actuais indicam.

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

Obrigado

Penedo Gordo é uma aldeia do Baixo Alentejo, com várias centenas de habitantes, situada a 5 km (quilómetros) de Beja, próxima da famosa Fonte das Cavadas.

Foi uma região povoada pelos romanos, na qual ainda podemos encontrar os seus vestígios: as Ruínas de Pisões e os Arcos Romanos.

Penedo Gordo é um meio rural mas com características de bairro urbano. As casas são do tipo rural alentejano.

Lenda da Fonte das Cavadas

Há muitos anos que a Fonte das Cavadas tem dado de beber aos habitantes do Penedo Gordo e a todos os que por ali passam.

Foi mandada construir por Luís Filipe Fernandes em 1876 e conta a história a seguinte lenda:

Há muitos, muitos anos atrás, havia naqueles terrenos um touro e uma serpente que procuravam delimitar o seu terreno para se sustentarem.

A serpente, vivia no ribeiro alimentada por um fio de água que não se sabia de onde vinha. O touro, vivia com a manada nas ricas pastagens.

Conta a lenda que um dia os dois animais travaram entre si uma forte discussão.

O touro zangado, erguendo as patas de frente dizia:

_ Oh serpente, tu não podes continuar a roubar a água que me mantém as pastagens verdes!

E a serpente, tão zangada como o touro respondia:

_ E tu touro, não me podes continuar a roubar a água por onde eu anda!

Conta a lenda que nesse momento os dois animais começaram a lutar. A serpente tentou enrolar-se em volta do corpo do touro para o matar e o touro levantava as patas da frente para a esmagar.

De repente, apareceu uma fada e disse:

_"Vós que lutais por causa da água, vou-vos transformar em fonte! Tu touro, transformar-te-ás na bica mais fina que correrá para sempre. No Inverno, a água será quente e no Verão fresca.

Ficareis sempre separados e sempre misturados e rompereis uma ribeira "Cavadas" que matará a sede dos campos e dos que por aqui passarem."

Penedo Gordo is a village in the Alentejo, with several hundred inhabitants, located 5 km (miles) from Beja, near the famous Fountain of the Dug.

It was a region populated by the Romans, in which we can still find its traces: the Ruins of Pisões Arcos and Romans.

Penedo Gordo is a rural environment but with characteristics of urban neighborhood. The houses are of the rural Alentejo region.

Legend of the Fountain of the Dug

For many years the source of drinking Dug has given to the inhabitants of Penedo Gordo and all who pass by.

It was built by Louis Philippe Fernandes in 1876 and tells the story the following legend:

There are many, many years ago, there were those land a bull and a serpent that sought to demarcate their land to support themselves.

The snake lived in the stream fed by a trickle of water that no one knew whence he came. The bull, lived with the herd in the rich pastures.

Legend has it that one day the two animals fought among themselves a strong argument.

The bull angry, raising his front paws said:

_ Oh Snake, you can not continue to steal the water that keeps me the greener pastures!

And the serpent, as angry as a bull replied:

_ And thou bull, I can not continue to steal the water where I walk!

Legend has it that this time the two animals began fighting. The snake tried to wrap around the body to kill the bull and the bull lifted his front paws to crush.

Suddenly, a fairy appeared and said:

_ "You who struggle because of the water, you'll turn into a source! You sire, thou shalt turn in lines finer than run forever. In winter, water will be hot and cool in summer.

You shall be separated forever and always mix and break up a creek "Dug" that kills the thirst of the fields and that pass through here. "
