Geocache Description:


Esta Atlantis madeirense que marcou várias gerações foi construída entre 1970 e 1972 e existiu até Março de 2000.

O complexo integrava um plano de cidade turística, que incluía, um hotel, apartamentos turísticos, o clube de bridge com restaurante, sala de jogos e bar inglês, um centro comercial com cinema e bowling e uma piscina olímpica com o restaurante de janelas com vista para o interior da piscina.
A necessidade de ampliação da pista do aeroporto implicou a demolição do hotel num processo muito complexo e demorado de que ainda hoje restam os estigmas.
A implosão do edifício ditou o início do fim, hoje, o que não se encontra abandonado é propriedade de particulares, o restante complexo está abandonado à espera de melhores dias.

Esta cache requer alguma prudência na procura, há muitos vidros e outros destroços próprios de um edifício em ruínas. Não se aconselha a procura à noite. A aproximação pode ser feita pelo lado Este ou Oeste, ver waypoints.


This true madeiran Atlantis was once a symbol of Madeira and it left it's mark on generations of locals. The whole complex was built between 1970 and 1972 and existed until march 2000.
The complex was part of a tourist town plan, which included a hotel, tourist apartments, with a bridge club, restaurant, games room and an English bar, a shopping center with cinema and bowling and an Olympic size pool including a restaurant with windows overlooking the pool.
The need for expansion of the airport runway led to the demolition of the hotel in a slow and complex process from which there are still stigmas.
The implosion of the building dictated the beginning of the end, nowadays everything that is not abandoned is privately owned, the remainder complex was left hoping for better days.

This cache requires some caution, there are glass and other debri from the ruined building. I don't recomend you search at night. The approach may be from the East or West, see waypoints.
