Geocache Description:

A Praça Cornélia fica na Vila Romana, distrito da Lapa cujas ruas receberam nomes de personalidades do Império Romano.

The Cornelia plaza is located in Vila Romana, Lapa district, where streets are named Personality of the Roman Empire.


Cornelia, filha de Cipião, o Africano. Procurou educar os filhos, os irmãos Gracos, no amor ao povo. Era mulher culta e inteligente, de caráter firme. Nasceu em 189 a.C. e morreu em 110 a.C. Quando morreu, foi erigida uma estátua de bronze em sua homenagem, no Forum Romano. Foi a primeira estátua de uma mulher não mitológica, exposta em local público de Roma. Do monumento, ainda se conserva a base com a epígrafe “Cornelia Africani F. Gracchorum” (Cornélia, filha do Africano, mãe dos Gracos").

É uma praça bastante movimentada e agradável, bem arborizada, com bancos e alguns aparelhos para a prática de exercícios. Nessa praça pode ser encontrada uma igreja católica cuja construção foi feita em 1940.

Para encontrar o cache você vai ter que resolver um pequeno enigma:

Procure na praça por um busto erigido em homenagem à um religioso que tem grande ligação com a Paróquia. Nesse monumento encontram-se escritas as datas de nascimento e morte dessa pessoa. Anote os números dos anos de nascimento e morte considerando a seguinte criptografia:

Ano de nascimento = ABCD
Ano de falecimento = EFGH

Com esses dados calcule as coordenadas do cache:
S 23° (B-D) A . D A (D+E-3)’
W 046° (F-D+E) E . (F-D) H (G-5)’’
