Geocache Description:










Translation: 

CAIS DE SÃO JORGE


Segundo escrevem alguns historiadores, durante mais de quatro séculos, São Jorge funcionou como um dos mais importantes entrepostos comerciais do norte da ilha da Madeira. Na realidade, numa pequena enseada marítima atracavam as embarcações vindas do Funchal e de outras paragens que abasteciam as freguesias de São Jorge e Santana. Mas, a partir do século XX, a construção da nova estrada, acaba com a preponderância da freguesia. A povoação entrou em declínio uma vez que deixou de ser ponto de passagem obrigatório.



According to some historians, for more than four centuries, St. George served as one of the most important trading posts in the north of the island of Madeira. Indeed, in a small pier moored vessels coming from Funchal and from other locations who provided the parishes of St. George and Santana. But, in the twentieth century, the construction of new road, ends with the preponderance of the parish. The population has declined since then.


A cache foi colocada antes do cais pois o acesso ao cais é feito através de umas escadas de madeira. É recomendado uma visita cuidadosa à ponta do Cais, o único ponto da ilha onde se pode vislumbrar toda a costa norte!



The cache was placed before the pier because the pier access is made through stairs of wood. We recommend a careful visit to the tip of the pier, the only point of the island where you can watch the whole northern coast!
