Geocache Description:

1st Battle of Tãmão was a naval battle when the Ming Dynasty Imperial Navy defeated a Portuguese navy led by Simão de Andrade in 1521.

Simão de Andrade had been kidnapping Chinese children to sell in Malacca, and ignored Chinese sovereign authority at Tãmão, building a fort. The Chinese believed that the Portuguese roasted and ate the Chinese children which they had kidnapped.

Chinese's fleet won.

Tãmão, the Portuguese name of Tuen Mun

The cache is not on ground floor, it is on 1st floor and under a big metal rain cover. GPS signal has +-10m errors is expected.
