Geocache Description:



A ilha de São Miguel foi comprada por Gonçalo Zarco, por 2000 cruzados e alguns quintais de acúcar, ao Capitão do Donatário de Santa Maria. Em São Miguel os primeiros povoadores desembarcam na Povoação, onde se estabelecem, depois dirigem-se a Vila Franca e só mais tarde chegam a uma das planicies mais aprazíveis da ilha, precisamente Ponta Delgada. Ponta Delgada é uma plataforma com fraca inclinação desde o mar, do lado sul, até à zona de montanhas que faz o pano de fundo. Em São Pedro viveu também o Morgado do Canto, no Século XVIII. No Século XIX a casa do Morgado foi residência de Don Pedro IV, o Duque de Bragança, quando passou por São Miguel, antes de partir para o continente para estabelecer o regime liberal.(Hoje o edifício sede do Tribunal de Contas da Região Autónoma dos Açores) O Duque desembarcou em São Miguel e instalou a sua corte em São Pedro, a corte do liberalismo. Depois andou pelas outras ilhas em busca de dinheiro e meios, para finalmente partir para o continente com 7.500 soldados para derrubar o poder absolutista. Esta partida é outro marco histórico de São Pedro, os 7.500 soldados reuniram e partiram do Relvão em São Pedro, local da última corte do príncipe regente nos Açores. Devido a estes acontecimentos transformou-se posteriormente o Relvão numa zona de lazer, de passeio público, e teve o nome de Alameda da Liberdade ou Alameda do Duque de Bragança. Era um jardim público com passeios largos entre àrvores frondosas, um espaço com tendências afrancesadas.

The island of São Miguel was bought by Gonçalo Zarco crossed for 2000 yards and some sugar, the Captain of the grantee of Santa Maria. In San Miguel the first settlers landed in the Village, where they settle, then drive to Vila Franca and only later come to one of the most delightful plains of the island, precisely Ponta Delgada. Ponta Delgada is a platform with a slight slope from the sea, on the south side, to the area of mountains makes the backdrop. Also lived in San Pedro Morgado's Corner, in the eighteenth century. In the nineteenth century the house was the residence of the Morgado de Don Pedro IV, Duke of Braganza, when passed through San Miguel, before leaving for the continent to establish the liberal regime. (Today the headquarters of the Court of Auditors of the Autonomous Region of Azores) Duke landed in San Miguel and installed his court in San Pedro, the court of liberalism. Then walked the other islands in search of money and means to finally leave for the continent with 7,500 soldiers to overthrow the absolutist power. This game is another landmark of St. Peter, the 7,500 soldiers gathered and departed the Relvão in San Pedro, site of the last cut of the Prince Regent in the Azores. Due to these events became later the Relvão a recreational area of public sidewalk, and had the name of Liberty Alameda Alameda or the Duke of Bragança. It was a garden with wide sidewalks between àrvores leafy, a space with trends frenchified.
