Geocache Description:

"Cova dos Mouros" - Local de Culto

O Santuário de Nossa Senhora da Vila Velha situa-se no monte com o mesmo nome, a cerca de 500 metros da vila de Fronteira, no coração do Alentejo.

Diz-se que a vila de Fronteira terá sido primitivamente edificada neste mesmo monte, desconhecendo-se ao certo a data de fundação do Santuário, embora alguns estudos apontem para 1226.
Da construção primária apenas restam algumas cabeceiras de sepulturas e a tampa de um sarcófago, sabendo-se que o santuário já existia em 1489.
O seu interior está decorado com bonitos painéis de azulejos.

Do miradouro adjacente tem-se uma vista fabulosa de todo o bonito cenário circundante de Fronteira e Cabeço de Vide
