Geocache Description:

Cortez is a small hamlet set in a beautiful tranquil valley in the Monchique hills below the quarry at Nave. You will pass by typical Portuguese farm cottages that are still inhabited by local people. The trail takes you into a deep valley surrounded by cork and medronho trees, you may need waterproof shoes as, depending upon the weather, you may have to pass over a small stream.

The multi cache consists of two micro caches, each containing the co-ordinates for the next cache. The final cache consists of a small pad, pencil, sharper and CASH! Please take a coin and replace with one of your choosing.

Cortez é uma pequena aldeia situada num lindo e tranquilo vale no meio das montanhas de Monchique, por baixo da pedreira, em Nave. Passará por pequenas casas e quintas típicas, ainda habitadas pela gente da terra. O caminho leva-o a um vale profundo, rodeado de árvores de cortiça e medronheiros. Será boa ideia levar calçado impermeável, pois dependendo do tempo poderá ou não ter de passar por um pequeno riacho.

A multi cache consiste de duas micro caches, cada uma das quais contendo as coordenadas para a próxima cache. A cache final consiste de um pequeno bloco, lápis, afiador e DINHEIRO! Faça o favor de retirar uma moeda e substituí-la com uma à sua escolha.

Tenha cuidado ao procurar a cache. Não há necessidade de andar em cima de qualquer muro que lhe possa aparecer durante a geocache.

Sugerimos que deixe o carro estacionado ao pé da paragem de autocarros na Nacional 266, onde se vira para Cortez
(N 37 17.231, W 008 33.799). Poderá ter de voltar um pouco atrás depois de encontrar a primeira cache.

Deverá contar com 1 a 2 horas para encontrar a cache do dinheiro.

Boa sorte!

Please take care in searching for the cache, there is no need to walk on any parts of any walls you come across during the geocache.

We suggest parking at the bus stop lay-by on N266 at the turning for Cortez (N 37 17.231, W 008 33.799). You may have to retrace your steps for a while after you find the first cache.

Allow 1-2 hours to find the cash cache.

Good Luck
