Geocache Description:

This Historic Church with a leaning Tower is part of the Old Town, This is where Admiral Nelson's troops landed and were beaten into submission.

This is a quick cache taking about 10 - 15 minutes in total ..ideal for people on Cruise Ships!


 

There is a tiny park here and an open space with benches. It is Part of the Old City named "Noria" (the waterwheel) If you have the time, the street above the tower has now become the "In-Place" to linger for a coffee; but it is also home to the different 'Murgas' that make the Carnival what it is today. Check it all out. It is beside a barranco that can become violent when storm waters fill it. During Febuary 2 of 2010 the area was hit by floods...A link above will direct you to videos and you can see the devastation that the Church and its surroundings suffered!
The coordinates above take you to the Main Entrance of the Church and you can take a seat opposite and work through the Questions that will give you the Final Coordinates (100+ metres away).   While I was here, I paused for thought as I was admiring the design of the 'wrought iron' gates at the entrance..... you will find a lot of them in the immediate area (hint) !        Good Luck.

The Cache is here:-    N28º AD.CDE    W016º FG.RST

Opposite the Main Entrance is an 'Old Door' the number beside it is .... A

The number of  "Upper" SpearHeads  around the Main  Entrance   =   D C

What is the 'Street Number' of the Farmacia?    =  E

The Church was founded in the Year (more or Less)........ F G - -

(Number of "Big Wooden Doors" of the Entrance) x (A) x (B)  =  RST !!! (This is a bit of a 'Trick' Question)

The number of letters in the Street name   =  B

The Walls in this district are Very Old and will Crumble Easily..... Please leave them alone....

The cache is NOT in any Wall
