Geocache Description:

[PT] Talvez a melhor vista panorâmica sobre a cidade velha.
[EN] Maybe the best scenic view over the old town.
[FR] Peut-être la plus belle vue panoramique de la ville.
[DE] Der wahrscheinlich beste Panoramablick der Stadt.

Tal como a capital do nosso belo Portugal, também Albufeira é uma cidade rodeada de colinas. Aqui no Sul do país (mas não só) é mais comum estas colinas chamarem-se de cerros e, Albufeira estava rodeada por cinco.

São eles:
  • Cerro Alagoa
  • Cerro Branco
  • Cerro do Castelo
  • Cerro Malpique
  • Cerro da Piedade

Esta cache está situada no Cerro da Piedade, que é também conhecido por Cerro Grande pois é o maior dos 5 que rodeiam a cidade velha.
A cache tem vista priviligiada para o mar e cidade velha, pois está num dos poucos locais destes cerros que ainda não foi consumido pela selva de betão.
Espero que gostem e que aproveitem ao máximo, enquanto vai durando.

Por favor, leve algo para escrever!

Desafio aos geocachers: É incerto quanto tempo vai durar esta "clareira", então porque não guardarmos esta vista para sempre, não só na nossa memória, mas em foto? Enviem fotos juntamente com o vosso log.

As the capital of our country, Albufeira is also a city surrounded by hills. Here in southern Portugal (but not only) is more common to call them "Cerro", instead of "Colina", and Albufeira was surrounded by five of them.

They are:
  • Cerro Alagoa
  • Cerro Branco
  • Cerro do Castelo
  • Cerro Malpique
  • Cerro da Piedade

This cache is located in Cerro da Piedade, which is also known as Cerro Grande (Big Hill) because it is the largest of the five hills that once surrounded the town.
The cache has scenic view for the sea and the old town, and it is one of the few places on these hills that has not been consumed by the concrete jungle.
I hope you enjoy it and make the most of it while it lasts.

Please, bring something to write with!

Challenge to geocachers: It is uncertain how long will this view last, so why not keep it forever, not only in our memory, but in a photograph? Send some photos along with your log.
