“Túneis da Madeira”
Devido à orografia da nossa ilha, desde cedo os nossos antepassados sentiram a necessidade de criar soluções eficazes para ligar de forma rápida e segura todas as populações.
A fórmula encontrada passou por escavar na rocha nas zonas onde o terreno não permitia passar com estrada convencional. Desta forma surgiram os túneis.
Estes primeiros túneis foram todos eles construídos manualmente, e só em casos onde o terreno não permitia escavar a braços eram utilizados explosivos. Devido à falta de segurança na utilização desses explosivos muitas foram as vidas que se perderam em acidentes ao longo destas construções.
Esta cache pretende homenagear todos aqueles que trabalharam arduamente para que fosse possível chegarmos comodamente a todos os recantos da nossa ilha.


(Eng.)
"Tunnels of Madeira"

Due to the topography of our island, early our ancestors felt the need to create effective solutions to connect quickly and securely all populations.
The formula found in the rock went through digging in areas where the terrain is not allowed to pass with conventional road. Thus appeared the tunnels.
These early tunnels were all constructed manually, and only in cases where the terrain would not allow digging the arms were used explosives. Due to lack of security in the use of these explosives were many lives that were lost in accidents along these constructions.
This cache aims to honor all those who have worked hard to make it possible to comfortably reach all corners of our island.
