Geocache Description:


Fonte Chafurdo - Póvoa de Cervães [Mangualde]




A água foi e será sempre condição imprescindível para existência de vida. Póvoa de Cervães não foge à regra. O povoado foi-se construindo nas proximidades da ribeira do Rebedal e com o decorrer dos anos, houve necessidade de trazer a água até aos consumidores em condições de salubridade e comodidade cada vez maiores. É nesta dinâmica que surge a fonte de Chafurdo que deverá ter sido o 1º ponto de água comunitário da aldeia. É toda feita em granito e foi recentemente alvo de obras de requalificação, bem como toda a envolvente, tendo sido, e bem, mantidas as poldras que permitem a travessia da ribeira.

Também o largo da Senhora dos Remédios (local de estacionamento para esta cache) merece uma visita. Façam este pequeno passeio nas margens da ribeira e divirtam-se.


The water was, and will always be an essential condition for the existence of life. Póvoa de Cervães is no exception. The village has been built near the banks of Rebedal riverside and over the years, it was necessary to bring water to consumers in health conditions and increasing convenience. It is this dynamic that leads to the construction of the Source Chafurdo that should have been the 1st water point of the village community. It's all done in granite and was recently recovered, as well as all the surrounding, being well kept the fillies that allow the crossing of the river.

Also the broad off Senhora dos Remédios (parking location for this cache) deserves a visit. Do this little walk on the banks of the riverside and have fun.
