Geocache Description:


A casa do Caramujo fica situada na zona da Bica da Cana. Nas imediações da casa existe uma pequena lagoa, conhecida pela Lagoa do Caramujo.Esta casa retrata outros tempos, em que é bem visível alguns aspectos das tradicionais casas de campo. A casa encontra-se abandonada e em ruina. Ao explorar o interior da casa tome precaução.

Desde o estacionamento até ao local terá que percorrer cerca de 3,8km. Em alguns locais o piso poderá estar escorregadio. Pelo caminho haverá algumas indicações. Para entrar para a casa existem 2 caminhos, o primeiro (W1) é mais agradável mas tem que ir atento pois existe uma pequena entrada à esquerda que dá acesso à casa. A 2ª opção (W2) dá acesso directo à casa.

Após visitar a cache, vá até à lagoa. No verão poderá não haver água.

Nota: O trilho continua após a lagoa, dá acesso ao Folhadal e à Encumeada mas se o fizer programe bem o passeio pois terá que percorrer ainda 8km. Deverá levar lanterna e impermeável. Mapa


The "Casa do Caramujo" is located in the area of Bica da Cana. Nearbythe house there is a small lagoon, known with the same name of the house. This house recalls other times, it is clearly visible some aspects of the traditional country house. The house is abandoned and in ruin. In exploring the interior of the house take caution.

From the parking to the cache will have to walk 3,8km. In some places the path may be slippery. Along the way there are some indications. To get to the house there are two paths, the first (W1) is more pleasant but have to go aware that there is a small entrance on the left that gives access to the house. The 2nd option (W2) gives direct access to the house.

After visiting the cache, go to the small lagoon. In the summer there may be no water.

Note: After the lagoon the path continues, and gives access to Folhadal and Encumeada, will have to walk 8km. You need a lantern and a raincoat. If you want to do, I suggest the schedule this walk. Map
