Geocache Description:

Cache near Pedrinate. Altitude 556m, 40mins walk uphill from parking/cache nei pressi di Pedrinate. 556m di altitudine, 40 minuti a piedi in salita dal parcheggio/Cache in der Nähe Pedrinate. Höhe 556m, 40 Minuten zu Fuß bergauf vom Parkplatz.

The cache is located close to the village of Pedrinate, which is the most southerly village in Switzerland, in the canton of Ticino (Tessin). Pedrinate is on the Italian border and has some nice walks in the surrounding woods and hills both down the valley into Chiasso or across the hill into Italy. Pedrinate is an old village, and has its current name from the 13th century, but some Roman remains have been found near its church, suggesting a much longer occupation. Around the cache site you’ll find some vineyards and a lovely view from the Penz Hill down across the Swiss valley into Chiasso and beyond to Vacallo and Morbio.
The cache can be found after a reasonably gentle climb up the hill through the woods. You can park at either N45° 49.537 E09°01.080 or N45° 49.563 E09° 00.798.
This is my first ever cache, and I hope you enjoy this peaceful spot as much as we do. The cache is now at one with nature. Please put it gently back in its hiding place.

La cache si trova vicino a Pedrinate, il villaggio più a sud della Svizzera, nel Canton Ticino. Pedrinate è sul confine italiano e ha alcune belle passeggiate nei boschi e le colline circostanti, sia lungo la valle in Chiasso o attraverso la collina in Italia. Pedrinate è un antico borgo e ha il suo nome attuale dal 13 ° secolo, ma alcune rovine romane sono state trovate vicino alla chiesa, che fa pensare ad un insediamento molto più antico. Intorno al sito della cache troverete alcuni vigneti e una splendida vista dalla collina di Penz verso il basso attraverso la valle di Chiasso e oltre a Vacallo e Morbio.

La cache può essere trovato dopo una salita abbastanza dolce attraverso il bosco. È possibile parcheggiare in N45° 49.537 E09°01.080 o N45° 49.563 E09° 00.798.

Questa è la mia primissima cache, e spero che goderete di questo angolo di pace tanto quanto noi. Adesso il cache è più adatto alla natura. PF riposizionarla con cura.

Der Cache liegt in der Nähe des Dorfes Pedrinate, die südlichste Gemeinde in der Schweiz, im Kanton Tessin. Pedrinate ist an der italienischen Grenze und hat einige schöne Spaziergänge in den umliegenden Wäldern und Bergen, sowohl unten im Tal Richtung Chiasso als auch auf dem Berg Richtung Italien. Pedrinate ist ein altes Dorf, dessen heutiger Namen aus dem 13. Jahrhundert stammt. Es wurden jedoch auch einige römische Überreste in der Nähe der Kirche gefunden, was auf eine ältere Siedlung hindeutet. Rund um die Cache-Website finden Sie einige Weinberge und eine schöne Aussicht vom Berg Penz Hill In Richtung des Tals von Chiasso und hinüber auf Vacallo und Morbio.

Der Cache kann nach einem nicht anspruchsvollen, sanften Aufstieg auf dem Berg durch den Wald gefunden werden. Sie können entweder bei N45° 49.537 E09°01.080 oder bei N45° 49.563 E09° 00.798 parken.

Dies ist mein allererster Cache überhaupt, und ich hoffe, Sie genießen diesen ruhigen Ort genauso, wie wir es tun. Der Cache ist jetzt in Harmonie mit der Natur. Zu ersetzen Sie es bitte sorgfältig.
