Geocache Description:

Situado bem próximo da aldeia de Porto Formoso, nos arredores da cidade de Ribeira Grande, o Miradouro de Santa Iria espelha bem a verdejante beleza da magnífica Ilha de São Miguel, no Arquipélago dos Açores, rodeada pelo vasto azul do Oceano Atlântico. Deste Miradouro aprecia-se a beleza da costa Norte desta maravilhosa Ilha, que respira um ambiente muito próprio, também marcado pelas vastas plantações de chá. Diz-se que foi nestas encostas que a 3 de Agosto de 1831 se travou a Batalha da Ladeira da Velha, quando as tropas de D. Pedro IV venceram as do seu irmão D. Miguel, abrindo-se o caminho para Concessão de Évora Monte, que pôs termo à Guerra Civil de 1832/34, entre liberais e miguelistas.
