Situated on the road to Monchique, very easy cache highlighting the view of the quarry of Nave.
The quarry of Monchique produces syenite rock which is very similar in properties to granite. Its cut from the quarry using heavy machinery and often seen being transported down to Porto do Lagos and the Sienave company. This is where it is cut further and polished to make beautiful work tops, seating, paving etc....and sent all over the world. The quarry is also used to make calcada and various grades of gravel/brita that is used on the roads and for more decorative purposes garden landscaping. The cache is easy to find and contains notebook and pencil.
Beware of muggles!!
