Geocache Description:

  Sous le Mirador  

In a "royal" forest, under the remains of a relatively recent war.

The geocache is not very far from the "King François the 1st" alley going straight into the forest from the castle of Blois. It was used by the Ladies of the "court" to follow the king's hunts.

During World War II, the german troup used the forest to hide their ammunitions depots and built "miradors" to overlook the vicinity. One of them, made of concrete, is still watching over the young trees and overt the "treasure" hidden below.

Dans une forêt royale, sous un vestige d'un passé guerrier relativement récent.

La cache est proche de l'allée François 1er qui, partant du chateau de Blois, s'enfonce en ligne droite dans la forêt et qui permettait aux dames restées au chateau de suivre les péripéties des chasses royales.

La forêt à proximité de la ville ayant servi de dépot de munitions pendant la guerre de 1939-1945, des miradors furent construits par les troupes allemandes afin d'en protéger les accès. L'un d'eux, en béton, fut conservé et surveille maintenant des plantations de jeunes chênes. Il monte aussi la garde sur le "trésor" caché à ses pieds.
